Brian De Palma’s at it again with another loopy thriller, this time about a jewel thief (Romijn-Stamos) who double-crosses her accomplices, then assumes a new identity after encountering an identical look-alike. And that’s just the beginning. Stay tuned for the rich-diplomat husband, the prying paparazzo (Banderas), the faked kidnapping, and other slyly outlandish plot twists – most aimed at getting Romijn-Stamos out of her clothes. It’s too convoluted to be truly suspenseful and too silly to be taken seriously. But I couldn’t take my eyes off the voluptuous, er, camera work.
