It may be the ultimate "Lifetime movie," generated by two actresses who certainly know the playing field.
Infidelity, seduction and vengeance are hugely familiar ingredients of the cable channel's films, and they all factor into "A Sister's Revenge," premiering Saturday (April 27). Former "Baywatch" co-star Brooke Burns plays said sister, a smart schemer mourning her late sibling, who had an eventually unhappy romance with a novice restaurateur (Tim Rozon).
Determined to even the score, she targets the man, insinuating her way into the life of his new-mom wife (Ashley Jones, also an executive producer of the picture) as one element of her evil plan.

From the title, Undercover Bridesmaid sounds like it could be a Disney movie starring Hilary Duff circa 2001; yet this film aired in 2012 and stars an adult woman, Brooke Burns, in the title role.
