Storyline

Terri Hansen is discovered in the desert beside the blackened husk of her car which contains the charred corpse of her husband. When forensic evidence makes her out to be her husband's murderer, she quietly protests her innocence, but makes no effort to mount a defense. Terri doesn't expect to be believed. Was it self-defense or murder? While Terri acts strangely indifferent to her own fate, her attorney tries to reconstruct what happened. The moral ambiguity and the unfathomable mysteries of the human heart are just the sort of thing her attorney had hoped to leave behind him when he left big city law. In flashback, we see Terri's story. Written by Amy Krell <ASpeedy@aol.com>

The title says it all!
10 November 2002 | by (Tennessee, United States) – See all my reviews

Teri Hanson(Mary McDonnel)is definitely undone. Teri and Allan Hanson(Randy Quaid) have just moved to California to make a new start and to try and save their failing marriage. Allan is really angry and abusive. Teri is very lonely and she meets Jim Mercer(Benjamin Bratt), a life guard at the pool where she swims. Now Jim is a gorgeous, be-still-my-heart man. He is a gigolo though. Soon things heat up. The story twists and turns from there through out the movie. (Sam Shepard is a handsome lawyer, who's wife has died recently.) It's an okay movie. The twist at the end leaves you with your jaw on the floor and some unanswered questions. I would watch it just for that reason.

If you are a Benjamin Bratt fan, you have to see it just cause he is drool worthy as the sleazy lover. There are some steamy scenes between him and Mary McDonnel.
