Obvious, predictable, boring
24 October 2001 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The film opens with Chelsea Field stabbing her abusive husband before jumping forward in future to find Scott Bakula's best friend John Getz has gotten married to her on a cruise ship. As Bakula becomes more attracted to Field she becomes increasingly erratic and it is only a matter of time before Getz is dead, all fingers point to Field and Bakula's ex-girlfriend Assistant DA (Kelley) begins to bring charges. But is everything what it seems? When the film starts you find yourself making assumptions about the characters based on the information you have. This is quite easy as all the characters are pretty one-dimensional. However along the way there are several twists - some obvious, some red-herrings but the most are silly.

Bakula can't really act other than his one persona but he does manage to carry this standard of film off just about. Getz doesn't really have much to do as the film revolves around Field's character. Unfortunately Field is not a great actress and can't carry the lead - even of this. The best performance is from Kelley as Bakula's ex, she manages to create a more complex character that rises above the rest of the film.

Overall a pretty boring TV movie that seeks to excite with twists that don't have as much impact as they should. Interesting - but only just and no more.
