Picks and Pans Review: Ladykiller
USA (Wed., Aug. 19, 9 P.M. ET)
Mimi Rogers plays a calloused policewoman who has an impetuous affair with a guy (John Shea) whose previous lovers—with the exception of his unsuspecting wife (Alice Krige)—have all met violent ends.
The casting is seriously flawed. Rogers and costar Tom Irwin are about as believable as grizzled cops as Woody Allen would be playing a sumo wrestler. The movie's geography is pretty confused as well. One minute we're looking at the Chicago el, and the next, there are palm trees waving in the background.
