I'm sorry... this movie is LAME!
8 August 2001 | by (Dallas, Texas) – See all my reviews

I just watched this movie tonight; I guess it was re-run from its original showtime in 1997. All I have to say is dang... this was one SORRY TV movie. I mean I love Paula Abdul but this movie is far from a success and possibly one of the WORST made for TV films I have seen.

It leaves time for no character development and I mean immediately after the rape you know who the rapist is; there is NO ONE else (except at the end) that you would think is the rapist. The whole movie is centered around the main character Ellen (played by Abdul) trying to overcome being raped and she finds this guy (puh-leese) who she ends up suspecting isn't all that he says he is.

I found this movie to be very predictable and at the end when the true rapist is shown I had to laugh out loud because it was SOOOO corny!

Bottom line: if you're bored, have nothing else to do and this movie comes on TV by all means watch it and waste 2 hours of your life. Otherwise, DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME!

It was an okay attempt by Ms. Abdul to get into acting but this movie falls short of success (way short).

Out of a possible score of 10, I give this movie a 4 :(
