Compelling, 4 February 2001
Author: nathid

"The Stepsister" is an interesting variation on the gold-digging wife storyline. This is a good attempt at a thriller, but it doesn't thrill nearly enough.

All through the film, the tension seems as though it is rising to a dramatic climax, but alas, it doesn't come.

There were competant performances from Bridgette Wilson and Rena Sofer in the main roles, and generally a new and different story line. Shame about the let-down ending.
