Excellent Psycho Drama......
7 November 2005 | by See all my reviews

Jaclyn Smith is definitely having a good time being "bad" on the small screen. She reminds me of Gene Tierney's character in the classic film "Leave Her To Heaven.

Smith is always a capable performer and this is one of her best. Acting wise, this is a top notch. Not only fans of Smith will enjoy this film but also fans of this genre.

For the fans, there's some shots in the opening credits of Smith's "real" magazine covers from Vogue, etc..., well, she played a former model who must have everything even the love for her best friend's husband.

Final verdict : Gorgeously Evil .......
