James Patterson liked the film enough to ask Gary Fleder to direct the 2012 reboot. Fleder turned down the opportunity as he felt that he had already covered that ground. See more »

[Kate is under hypnosis, reliving her escape from Casanova]
I hear him, whispering.
What does he say?
I can feel his mouth on my ear, his breath. He tells me that he loves me.
Tell me about his face. Tell me about his eyes. His mouth.
[Kate's breathing begins to quicken]
He has no face. A mask! He always wears a mask!
What kind of mask? What does it look like?
[her breathing slows]
It changes. I can't show him that I hate him.
But you escape. What do you see when you escape?

Originally, the voice of Casanova was dubbed (though uncredited) by Jeff Kober. In later airings (notably satellite broadcasts), his voice was dubbed by Tony Goldwyn, who also plays Dr. Rudolph (The Gentleman Caller) in the movie. See more »
I didn't really know much about this movie when I saw that it was coming on HBO. I just decided "what the hell" and watched it. Besides, Morgan Freeman is one of my favorite actors. After a few minutes of KISS THE GIRLS, I was instantly glued to the television. It was pretty dark and very suspenseful, but I truly liked it.
Dr. Alex Cross (Morgan Freeman), a psychologist/detective from Washington DC is sent to investigate a man known as "Casanova", who is kidnapping, imprisoning and occasionally torturing and killing beautiful women. His niece is among one of the kidnapped. Along with the help of Kate Mctiernan, (Ashley Judd) who escaped from the maniac, and Detective Nick Ruskin (Cary Elwes), Cross sets out to find and stop the murderer.
The plot is fascinating and will most likely keep you on the edge of your seat and holding onto the arm of your chair. The acting jobs are very good too. Some parts are very dark and a little disturbing, but it often only helps the story line. Morgan Freeman, as usual, does a great job as the main character. Ashley Judd and Cary Elwes also did impressive performances.
The ending of this movie is pretty good and rather surprising. Go out and rent this whenever you're in the mood for a little suspense, you won't be disappointed.
