Storyline

Paul Keller is a married pastor who preaches piety on Sunday, while carrying on a torrid affair with the local school teacher, Veronica Dow, during the week. The lovers concoct a scheme to fake Keller's death so that they can be together, but the plan goes awry when Keller hits his head and awakens not knowing who he is. A dazed Keller wanders into the motel he used for his secret liaisons, and is found by Charlene Hunt, a lonely and desperate motel manager, who realizes Keller has amnesia and makes him her prisoner and lover. In the interim, Keller's wife Martha is suspected of foul play by an insurance investigator and forges an unwitting alliance with Dow, her husband's lover. Written by leopardo_delle_nevi

Such wasted talent
27 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Nicholas Walker is Paul, the local town Reverand who's married to Martha (Ally Sheedy), but also is a habitual womanizer and decides to fake his own death to run away with his current affair, Veronica (Dara Tomanovich). However in so doing, he gets a bout of amnesia (hence the name of the film). Sally Kirkland is also on hand as a crazy old coot who pines for the good Reverand in a shades of "Misery" type of way. It's sad to see a pretty good cast wasted like this. Not the least bit John Savage in a horridly forgettable role as a shoddy private investigator. In a film billed as a 'black comedy', one has to bring BOTH elements into said movie. While this does bring the former in spades, it sadly contains none of the latter. Furthermore you can't emphasize with any of the characters and as thus, have absolutely no vested interest in them. Technically not an all-together bad movie just an extremely forgettable one.

Eye Candy: Dara Tomanovich gets topless; Sally Kirkland also shows some skin

My Grade: C-

Where I saw it: Showtime Showcase
