Picks and Pans Review: New on Video

UPDATED 08/19/1991 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 08/19/1991 at 01:00 AM EDT


JULIA ROBERTS SYMpathetically portrays a battered wife who fakes her death to escape her brutish husband, Patrick Bergin. But the script is full of outlandish turns, and Kevin Anderson, as a goody-two-shoes type who offers Roberts solace, seems far too wispy to convince anyone that he could persuade her to become involved with another man. When the bitter drama of abuse lapses into a long, cutesy-poo scene featuring Roberts trying on hats, the film takes on an air of desperation. (Fox)
