I liked it too, James, for all the reasons you cite, plus the photography--shifting from harsh sun-bright exteriors to deeply shadowed interiors with no jarring sense of dislocation. And yes, Jessica Alba -- sigh . . . -- but Kate Hudson too, both women were incredibly kittenish and hot in very different ways. I thought the sex scenes weren't just scintillating they told a crucial part of the story, and I felt squeamish as I watched them, like I should shout out a warning. But I can't rank it as high as AFTER DARK, MY SWEET, if only because the ending bugged me (whereas I think the ending of ADMS is pitch perfect).
SPOILER ALERT: I just couldn't buy a dozen people walking into a gas-soaked house and not one of them saying, "You smell sumthin?"
