    A bit too in-your-face, unsubtle and message driven, but it's other qualities were stretching from really good to great. The maid managed to be quite intimating, and the whole situation was horrifyingly surreal. It's essentially what Fatal Attraction would have been if the woman lived in your house.

    And yes, the ending, which was a moralizing epilogue to all men, was really god damn poor.
