I'm gonna have to lay this one at the feet of the actors. MJ Fox is so likable and benign that you never believe that he Could have killed his own wife (like the townsfolk think)

And Jake Busey plays the whole movie like a cartoon character - and it sort of takes me out of the film.

Don't get me wrong, I like it, but don't love it.
Gotta agree with you on MJF... I could walk in on him slashing someone to pieces and probably wouldnt buy it...
