The General's Daughter

Director: Simon West
Year Released: 1999
Rating: 1.0

Tiresome flick that's a twist on A Few Good Men: this time, the victim is a woman, and the crime is rape & murder. John Travolta and Madeline Stowe play the two detectives sent to investigate and, wouldn't you know it, the two are romantically involved in the film (very subtly, of course, cough, cough). A lot of criticism has been aimed at the film for its 'overly sexualized' rape scenes and 'ridiculous plot,' but I think there are a plethora of other problems to hurl its way, including horrible dialogue, dull performances and many, many cliches. For the record, I am officially tired of seeing James Cromwell.
