Trashy, utterly nonsensical thriller about an investigative reporter (Halle Berry) who, with the help of a sleazy computer-savvy colleague (Giovanni Ribisi), sets out to expose the big-shot advertising executive (Bruce Willis) who may have murdered her childhood friend after an adulterous affair. The ill-conceived script -- peppered with so many gratuitous uses of the f-word it's almost risible -- strains credulity at every turn, and most of the seamy sexual elements have little dramatic justification, though we'll credit director James Foley with bringing some visual flair. Nonstop rough and crude language and some profanity, heavy sexual content including a graphic premarital encounter without nudity, brief pornographic images, adultery, child abuse, some violent encounters including a bloody stabbing and a bludgeoning, and a gruesome morgue image. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
