Movie Summary

Director:
Gary Fleder
Released:
1997
Rating:
R

Kiss the Girls is the popular 1997 adaptation of the James Patterson bestselling suspense novel. A psychopathic murderer is kidnapping and storing aggressive and sexy young ladies. He is also drawn to their talents and brains. It may be that he is holding his living trophies in underground cells. It may be that he is stalking on both coasts; in South Carolina and in California. Does this diabolical deranged man have a partner in crime; or does he have a copy cat competing with him? One of the victims manages to get away. The lovely Ashley Judd (Heat, Frida) plays Dr. Kate McTiernan - who also happens to study kick boxing for a hobby. She ends up helping Morgan Freeman (Seven, The Shawshank Redemption, Glory), who plays forensic psychologist and special criminal investigator Alex Cross. Judd and Morgan work very well together and make the sleuthing as tense as holding forty bumble bees in a soup can.
