| A Fatal Attraction for Goldie
New York art restorer Goldie Hawn (as Adrienne) is seemingly stood-up on a blind date. This works out well, however, because Ms. Hawn eventually hooks up with likewise attractive museum curator John Heard (as Jack Saunders). He happened to be at the location, then shows up in her workplace. It's a whirlwind romance. Hawn's character appears to be smart, but love is blind. If you stop and think about this set-up, it doesn't make sense. Prepare yourself for even greater stretches of the imagination. Five years (at least) pass quickly and without much incident. With a sudden death at the museum, the plot thickens...

Instead of "explaining" the coincidental nature of the co-stars getting together, we suspend disbelief and proceed. To fill missing plot details in "Deceived" might take another hour. This well-produced, formula thriller requires leaving part of your brain at the door. The intricate story, by Mary Agnes Donoghue, is better than it plays; it might have been more intriguing and suspenseful to play down a pivotal character's status as a jewel thief and play up his status as a psychopath. Also, Hawn needs stabbing target practice. Kate Reid has a marvelous cameo, but Beatrice Straight barely appears. Damian Harris keeps you alert.
