A Fair Film
26 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Watched this film on a dull Sunday afternoon and the story was able to capture my attention for a few minutes. Robert Urich,"Clover Bend",'01, gets himself involved with an accident that puts his mind in a state of not being able to remember anything about himself or even the accident. Urick no sooner wakes up in the hospital when Michael Ironside (Det. Carl Madsen),"On That Day",'05, starts pestering him for information about the accident which involved a murder. Carl Madsen begins to suspect Urich of committing a series of murders which are performed by a hammer slamming into the skull of a person's head. Kay Lenz, is a shrink detective, who was once married to Carl Madsen. Kay tries to help restore Urich's memory in more ways than one, first, making hot sex with him, which never stops and two, trying to uncover his horrible nightmares. Robert Urich was a good actor, however, he was called to the higher stage in life very early in his life.
