      Susan Stark Detroit News Rated: 2/4 Jan 1, 2000 Full Review Hollis Chacona Austin Chronicle Rated: 1.5/5 Jan 1, 2000 Full Review Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times The Rich Man's Wife is not a great movie, but it's competent and effective enough, and I might have been tempted to give it a recommendation if I hadn't felt so cheated at the end. Rated: 2.5/4 Jan 1, 2000 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews Filmmaker Jones delivers a slow-moving thriller that's generally watchable enough (if entirely forgettable)... Rated: 2/4 Apr 18, 2020 Full Review Michael Dequina TheMovieReport.com 'Who is Keyser Sze?' Hard to believe, but the signature line from The Usual Suspects has everything to do with this limp 'from-hell' thriller. Rated: 2/4 Sep 10, 2005 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 2/5 Jul 21, 2005 Full Review Read all reviews
