Pretty good
5 July 2003 | by (Georgia) – See all my reviews

I liked this movie, I usually hate legal drama crap but this one was pretty good. Sadly, in real life pro athletes get off for stuff like this all the time no matter how many times they are accused, and their fans will always be on their side. The guy in this movie was a complete sociopath, it was really scary! I recommend this movie to anyone who likes legal films, and also to any Lifetime movie buff. The only problems I had with the movie: 1) The movie never tells what happened with that girl who got killed 2) Why did the daughter just forgive this woman for having an affair with her father, and why would she suggest they move in together? I mean come on no decent person would suggest a couple move in together!

Other then that the movie is really good! Please watch it!
