Grade: D+

Okay, I have several problems with this movie. Let's rock...

1) No chemistry between Kilmer and Sorvino. It's as if these characters just bumped into one another and decided to hook up.

2) Val Kilmer's portrayal of a blind man is pretty laughable. Was it necessary for him to smile through every scene? He seemed more creepy than anything.

3) The characters, who have no chemistry, fall head over heels in love in the course of about six hours. Sorry, but a couple sentences about listening to raindrops isn't enough to convince me that they have ANYTHING going on.

4) When Sorvino describes the old abandoned building to Kilmer, I wanted to bust up laughing. See the movie. Or don't.

5) The father serves no purpose for being in this movie.

6) The little kid next door pops up whenever the plot calls for him to do so. It gets pretty annoying.

7) As things deteriorate between Kilmer and Sorvino, little is explained. Is he mad at her? Is she just frustrated with the relationship? I wanted to raise my hand and start asking questions. Even when things are "resolved", I still had issues.

All in all, it's not the worst movie I've ever seen. Somehow, I got through the thing. But it's pretty sloppy and awkward. It's hard to even recommend this as a renter. Yuck.
