Clichéd copout
8 July 2001 | by (Kelfour's Landing) – See all my reviews

This film recently aired on Lifetime, and it saddens me to see the same old woman vs. woman clichéd combat repeated on a network purportedly catering to women. That is, to the woman who follows all of society's stereotypes. Lawrence's character is demonized for corrupting the young man (when it is quite clear that he, not her, is the aggressor) and for incidents stemming, in fact, from the ranting mother's actions. The film lost me almost entirely when during a long hysterical scene brandishing words like "child molester" and threats to call the police it turned out that the fellow was 18 - an age legal for sexual activity in every state in the Union, then as now! The ending is predictable and caters to Moral "Majority" expectations.

The film had its moments, the cinematography was fine and the love scenes torrid, but you don't sit through two hours of film to see ten good minutes if you have any sense.

Rating: 4/10
