Even worse than the terrible Twice Shy
10 March 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

How these mace for TV movies can be said to be based on the Dick Francis novels I don't know. His books are well written, well plotted thrillers whereas this is one of the most awful things ever put to film. Although In the Frame does follow the basic plot of the book, it seems to be playing things for lauhghs, which are turn out not to be funny. Ian McShane is cringeworthy as the hero and he is the best performance of the whole thing, which does not say much really. Not even bad enough to be entertaining I can honestly say I felt like I had wasted an hour and a half of my life afyter watching this film, I strongly advise other people not to make the same mistake.
