I'm pleased to report the pair not only matched their amusing first outing together, but possibly even topped it

Aside from a great story it's a good example of how the directing is the editing and vice versa

Slick but mostly bland, generic erotic thriller.

Offers up a mass of great scenes showcasing Van Damme’s legendary hand-to-hand combat skills

It's not much of a surprise to learn the director behind this food porn love story is Lasse Hallström, the dewey-eyed romantic behind ''Chocolat''....
