Awful Movie
12 November 1999 | by See all my reviews

This is the worst movie I have ever seen. The story was weak and the acting was terrible. This movie is about a lawyer (Rochon) who gets romantically involved with another lawyer who likes to blackmail clients. He eventually wants her to get involved in this scam too and when she threatens to go to the police he tries to kill her.
