When Wendy (Fiorentino) arrives out of the blue in a small, cow-country town near Buffalo, New York, the locals - notably Mike (Berg) - don't know what's hit them. She's smart, sexy, refuses to use the customary verbal niceties, and can twist the male population round her little finger. More importantly, unknown to Mike, who soon falls in love with her, she's not Wendy but Bridget, in hiding from husband Clay (Pullman), ever since she ran out on him, taking the entire proceeds of a drug deal he'd almost died perpetrating. And that's just the start of this tortuous, well-acted, witty, crisply photographed and immensely enjoyable thriller.
