Whilst traveling about the Midwestern region of the United States, cellist Gerard Huxley (Jean-Hugues Anglade) meets two young women, sisters Megan (Connie Nielsen) and Dominique (Mia Kirshner). The women learn that their father has passed on and decide to go to Seattle to inform their mother (Anne Archer) of her newly attained widow status, dragging the na´ve Gerard with them. The sisters turn out to have a bad streak a mile wide -- violence and death are left in the trio's tracks, including the killing of a judge (Robert Culp). Even though Gerard is guilty of little more than being in the wrong place at the wrong time, he is in a precarious situation now that he is traveling with killers and, eventually, everyone involved must answer for their deeds. ~ Ryan Shriver, All Movie Guide

In the contest for top-notch camp from the past decade, INNOCENTS should rate high. Beware, however, if you are not into snickering along with a supposedly serious movie as it grows progressively sillier and over-the-top. Somebody here (probably director/writer Gregory Marquette) must have pretty good connections. You'll be surprised at the top-notch actors (in both lead and subsidiary roles) and the very fine technical/creative staff he has assembled. To no avail. Oh-- it's all here: serial killers, incest, some nudity, a Frenchman (for sophistication), murder, cello music and a nice long car trip. As this eye-poppingly bad movie draws to a close, it may remind you of some would-be "art" film from the 60s or 70s (a genre I don't think we've seen much of since). The last scene alone will have you shaking your head and realizing, "Omigod--this guy actually thinks he's made something deep and meaningful!" And then you'll REALLY start to laugh.
