Storyline

Charming working class boy Eric is moving up by pimping in Martin Duvall's nightclub. He falls in love with naive Jessica 'Jesse' Kerner, who enjoys the luxury life and doesn't have to do a thing. Still Jesse's single mother Katherine 'Kate' Kerner, who always was permissive to avoid resembling her own strict mother, judge Edna Burton, mistrusts Eric. Her bugging ends up driving Jesse in the arms of hard pimp Russell, who hides her. Kate goes looking, but the police sees no crime, so Edna's help is now wanted. Written by KGF Vissers

Based on a true story...
5 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Too bad it wasn't based on a credible or well-written script! This isn't even good enough to be a bad Law and Order Special Victims Unit episode and isn't close enough to credibility to be "ripped" from today's headlines.

Lindsay Wagner is all over the place as Jessie's mother, Kate; the ingénue playing Jessie would be poor even by soap opera standards. She is almost laughable delivering her lines. Chad Lowe who has all of his scenes with Jessie brings out the worst in her. In fact, he gives his worst performance to-date (and that's saying volumes) as a wannabe pimp named Eric.

In contrast, Piper Laurie does what she can as Kate's mother, a judge - in very sense of the word. The actress playing Kate's best friend actually gives the film its best moments. The actor playing major-league pimp Russell was good enough to do so on a prime-time soap opera. The American Graffiti style happy ending hammers the final unbelievable nail into this typical women-as-victims-made-for-Lifetime exercise in wasting time.
