How to kill an interesting,fascinating an sadly based on a true story film with lousy directions and REALLY bad acting
12 April 2004 | by (Oslo, Norway) – See all my reviews

This is the sad story about Truddi Chase's life, a story who should be treated whit respect! How in earth could they put Shelley Long (Cheers) in that role, she could not handle it and it made the film boring and annoying because of her lack of talent! I wish that someone would remake this film, the role of Truddi Chase would be perfect for Joanna Kerns (Captive, Shattering the silence)

The only reason to watch this movie is because of the story, but i would rather wait until they have re-filmed it, so its possible to truly follow Truddi's life and not have a constant need to strangle Shelley Long.
