Dated and unexciting lesbianism??, but has one surprise.
22 February 2002 | by (Plymouth, MN, USA) – See all my reviews

The main problems with this movie are many.

1- it is hard to tell the sisters (Bond Gideon & Sharyn Talbert) apart. This has a little to do with that the two look similar, but more to do with the wierd editing style of the movie that seems to only distinguish the characters when they are apart. When the two sisters are in the same room, it is revealed that they both had lovers, that they both have a connection with the husband, etc...

2- The movie is edited strangely overall, if you can manage to stay awake through the slow pacing and the music that alternates between intriging and awful, you have the take of following one sence with an airplane and the husband to another with one of the sisters and another person. I guess we are supossed to assume that the other person is a man, but rather the only explaination of the editing is that it is in fact her sisters and that they share the same bed (thus explaining the talk of sharing her bed with anyone).

3- Hard to follow and only explainable though lesbianism. The above would seem to lead up to one of the sisters wanting to kill her other sister for both the insurance money and to kill off her lover. This is the plot as indicated, but the twists come in many at the end and they are not all easy to follow.

Basically, all the men die, deaths are blamed on people whom are already dead, or whom you have no clue who they are, the women clean up or at least one of them does (hmm. is she hiding something or framing someone?), and it is shown that at least one woman was in on it. BUT wait, the ending is not that simple, one more person has to die, for reasons unknown and unexplained other than some lesbianism, which may or may not be part of the point of this movie, but it is definitely strange.

Incidentally, the movie contains one interesting tidbit. At one point a sister is calling for the husband. She says a telephone number outloud (713)-594-8604. The number is suposed to be for a hotel room. The number is not a 555 number and it still works, but it is a cell.

Viewed on channel 45 late at night, perhaps the most surprising aspect about the movie though is that it exists and has TV rights.
