Like Fatal Attraction, but bad
I think 'A Kiss Goodnight' suffers mostly from a poorly written screenplay. I found myself frustrated as the protagonists made one unrealistically bad decision after another, throughout the entire movie. Unfortunately there's no way we can identify with characters who make so many stupid choices. Many of the plot points do not seem to be well thought out and require some suspensions of disbelief that are just beyond me. The cops' attitudes were not believable, and our main character's behaviour was disappointingly predictable given the situation she was in.
The acting was quite good, and the concept, while not entirely original, nevertheless exciting. However, what frustrated me to tears was the unrealistic decisions made by the characters. A few more careful script revisions could have solved many of the problems before production started. 3 out of 10.
