Poor knock-off of the Last Mrs. Cheney
26 December 2007 | by (Berkeley, California) – See all my reviews

I really don't have much to say about this movie because there is so little on which to comment. If you have ever seen the "Last Mrs. Cheney" and enjoyed it, this will likely be a disappointment. Greer Garson is fright. Fernando Lamas is at his best, which means he is at his hammiest. The plot and the pacing are all over the map because they tried to disguise the remake by re-writing it in random ways. Michael Wilding is good, but he is no William Powell. The final straw was the "deus ex machina" ending.

If there is no other option for watching a good classic movie, this flick might squeak by as an alternative. My apologies to those of you who like this movie. Sorry we can't see eye to eye on this one.
