Sexual healing?...a menage a trois goes horribly wrong.
26 January 2007 | by (Fairfax, VA) – See all my reviews

Rootless Vietnam vet (Braeden) assists a drunk old man one night by driving him home in the man's farm truck and is invited to spend the night by the man's much younger wife. The next day, as they all get acquainted, Braeden is offered a job on the place as a man-of-all work, of which there is plenty. At a leisurely pace, the trio becomes a menage a trois. The older man has serious guilt issues about an accident that killed his son and has become impotent which explains his apparent complacency about encouraging Braeden to become intimate with his young wife (Daly). A kind of sexual healing is intended, but as the affair progresses it brings out the worst in all three, eventually erupting in seething resentments and murderous rage. The viewer will start out liking these characters but will gradually come to dislike them. Recommended only for fans of studly Braeden who will enjoy seeing him frequently shirtless and sans mustache.
