Weak, Very Weak
26 April 2005 | by (Kentucky) – See all my reviews

Although Tommy Lee Wallace did a decent directing job on "The Spree", there is nothing much content-wise worth watching. Mostly this is due to a weak script that should never have made it into production. The plot and dialog are on the 1940's Saturday matinée serial level, the production design looks more like 1978 than 1998, and the sets are a couple Malibu houses.

The two main cast members in this 1998 feature are has-been sex symbols from 15 years earlier. Although Powers Boothe of "Southern Comfort" fame is believable as the wrapped too tight cop, Jennifer Beals is terribly miscast. She speaks with a NYC accent, looks like Talia Shire, and is dressed in a series of "earthy" outfits from Sears that are unappealing and unsexy. If they were going to cast her in this role they should have rewritten the character to fit her strengths instead of having her play a dowdy white trash character.

"The Spree" was produced for Showtime and justifies the prejudice about movies that are made for cable television.
