Waitress Slim weds what seems like the perfect husband, Mitch, until he starts cheating and knocking her about. She goes on the run with their young daughter Gracie, but he doesn't take kindly and relentlessly pursues them. Slim hatches plan after elaborate plan to elude his wrath, ending up resorting to violence.
Lopez has been worse (see – or rather, don't – Angel Eyes), and if you like to see women on the winning side, it's bearable. But the rom-com-gone-wrong plot feels woefully under-developed, and the attempts at film noir styling are embarrassingly incongruous.
