When a prominent lawyer is murdered, his wife is promptly arrested and charged for the crime. She then points the finger at her stepson whom she claimed to be having an affair with. This gave enough reasonable doubt to get her a mistrial but twee years later, prosecutors arrested and charged her again. Second time round proved unlucky for her. Written by mahajanssen

A bad Cheryl Ladd flick
22 May 2010 | by (New York City, NY) – See all my reviews

Of course, no one ever claimed she was much of an actress. This film proves it. Ladd goes around playing sexy and that's about it. No moments but puckering and prancing about in revealing costumes too tight and too small for her. And what a waste of talented actors such as Nick Mancuso and Mike Farrell. They must have been desperate to take on this project or the money was too good. It's pretty obvious about what will happen in this. Isn't it always when a bimbo marries a rich man? This is no different. Michael Woolson as the son tries to stay far away from the whore wife. But the script makes him succumb to her fancies.

All in all I give this a 2 and a half for the presence of Mancuso and Farrell and the attempt of Woolson. But 0 for the performance by Ladd.
