Chloe - 2010

Writer: Erin Cressida Wilson
Starring: Liam Neeson, Julianne Moore, Amanda Seyfried

"My husband's cheating on me. At least, I think he is." A remake of the 2004 French film Nathalie..., Chloe tells the story of a prostitute (Seyfried) hired by Catherine Stewart (Moore) to determine if her husband (Neeson) is being unfaithful.

This wasn't the worst movie I've ever seen, but I don't think I'll be buying this one on DVD. Despite the title (and an all-too-brief opening monologue), the focus of the film ends up more on Moore's shoulders than Seyfried's, though it meanders between the three of them quite a bit to get there. The writing is weak here and there, and it's never quite explained how Moore gets Seyfried's contact information to begin with. There's also a significant twist that will more than likely be a dealbreaker for any viewers, so tread lightly. But if you just want to shut your brain off and ogle Seyfried (you should be ashamed of yourself! that's not why I write these reviews!), by all means, watch the film.
