Not Bad, But A Few Too Many Twists
9 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This made-for-cable TV movie is nothing extra special but it was a decent story filled with a ton of twists in the last half of the100 minutes. Near the end, there were so many twists it would make your head spin. With all the "stretches" that brought with it, it was too much. It lost credibility and cohesion in the last 15 minutes by overdoing all those surprises.

Even though it has a no-name cast, a B-film feel to it, it was still well-acted and all the characters were interesting. It even had a few sexy scenes in there which helped give it the "R" rating.

Not a bad film and worth a look, especially if you are one who likes surprises.
