Wow
25 November 2003 | by (Indiana) – See all my reviews

My wife enjoys watching the lifetime network and I end up watching a lot of stuff I wouldn't end up watching otherwise. This movie is notable for the simple fact that I laughed throughout because of the predictability and fact most of the acting was awful.
