The Net

Mr. Cranky's rating: (2 Bombs)

Sandra Bullock is not naked in this film, which makes it a source of
constant agitation since every time she appears on screen one waits for her
to disrobe and she never does. 

Most actresses say that a serious, respected actress does not need to take
her clothes off. That being the case, one then expects this movie to be
about acting, but then again one is disappointed. "The Net" is about
technology taking over people's lives and how if we rely on technology too
much it begins to destroy the qualities that make us human. Unfortunately
this is expressed in the incredibly original form of having Sandra run away
from bad guys trying to kill her because she has access to some information
that could ruin their grand scheme to make a lot of money.

The ultimate insult in this movie comes when a catastrophic computer crash
is symbolized by melting graphics on a computer screen, which is basically
the director's (Irwin Winkler) way of saying: "I know you're too stupid to
understand what would really happen if a whole computer network crashed so
we will pretend that melting graphics might have something to do with it."
