shambolic and poorly made

September 1, 2011 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

[Director Takacs] plows cluelessly through the many implausible plot twists, and he directs poor Slater to act hysterically throughout.

Audience Reviews for Lies & Illusions

Got more then I expected from this one, one fault was Cuba Gooding Jr doesn't play that good of a bad tough guy role. Christian Slater plays an excellent role as the push over believe anything boyfriend. And what starts out as a thriller / mystery, often turns into comedy. Slater's first girl friend is supposedly killed and after morning her death for a year he is able to claim the goods she left behind, little does he know she's lead a secret life and has stole a bundle of diamonds from our bad guy Cuba Gooding Jr. If your looking for thrills and suspense go find a different movie, if you want a fun movie the this is your pick, I gave it 4 stars based on Fun Movie. A Rental for sure. 4 Sars 2-13-10

One of the worst movies I've seen in a while! Horrible in almost every way. It's unfortunate that Christian Slater and Cuba Gooding Jr. are connected to this. They're both actors that I like, but this is total garbage.

For a movie done on a budget minus the small screen of made for cable tv idea, this movie wasn't too bad to enjoy! With the idea that Christian Slater is a novelist writing a best seller book on relationships, and meeting and falling in love with a mysterious woman this movie takes you to Spokane, Washington...where Cuba Gooding Jr has a hunger for what the mysterious woman has...other than her appealing looks...also throw into the mix... ah hungry agent that will stop at nothing to get into the mix of the madness.... it's a good watch for a flick! See it...but for free...!!!
