    He came. He saw. He conquered. One sister at a time.
    Certificate: R
    Running Time: 98 mins

    Release Date:

    Lucy Owen has had countless love affairs, none of which have ever come close to grand passion! Enter Adam - her seemingly perfect man. Adam is handsome, kind and eminently loveable and in no time at all, Lucy has fallen for him.

    Best of all, Adam seems to really fit into Lucy`s close knit family, winning over her two sisters amd her mum with his devastating charms. Even her younger brother David is mesmerised.

    But there is more ABOUT ADAM than even the family imagines.

    "Kate Hudson shines!" says the writing on the cover. Well, not only does she not shine, her role in the movie is pretty minimal. Stuart Townsend steals the show.
    Having said that, do not mistake this for a good movie.
    It`s a movie about a guy, messing with an entire family. Yeah, "messing".
    The video transfer is good. There are no compression signs at all and the transfer is clear of defects.
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is also good. The surrounds are used occasionally. Well, for this kind of a movie - it`s acceptable.
    The menus are still and silent.
    The extras include a short behind the scenes featurette.
    Bottom line - a not-too-interesting movie with a rather bare disc to match. Skip it, will ya?
