Movie starts out pretty good...almost seems like it's a carbon copy of the Clive Owen thriller Derailed (A much better flick). However it takes a boring and very predictable turn for the worst...John (McGregor) for some reason wants the girl sooo bad he doesn't care that she was in on the plan to set him up to commit fraud and steal 20 MILLION dollars and completely ruin his life!?! Then when he has a chance to get clear with the 20 million he leaves it all behind to chase after the chick..let's remember, who fucked him over!!!

Hm, ok I guess. Typical sex thriller with intrigue & predictable twists. C

A bit predictable but still a decent thriller. The acting and dialog was pretty good and Ewan McGregor was great as a social-misfit accountant. I wish the story didn't unfold so predictably though, it almost ruined the film.
