Storyline

Aspiring politician Mark Lynch (Andrew McFarlane), has it all. His wife Ellie (Mimi Rogers), is smart and attractive; he has a perfect family and a beautiful home. And with friends in high places, nothing it seems can stop Mark making it to the top. Then a stranger arrives in town and tells Ellie that her husband has been having an affair. Lured to a secret location with the promise of more details, Ellie is drugged and falls unconscious, only to wake up later... alone. But it's not long before the stranger reappears - this time with explicit photographs of the two of them in bed and a demand for $1,000,000. In desperation Ellie's only way out is to tell Mark everything, but she is stunned when, threatened by the scandal he turns his back on her. The cops meanwhile want to use her to entrap the blackmailer. Confused, frightened and able to trust no-one, Ellie decides to handle things her way, little realising how much is at stake...

Boring blackmail with a twist.....
21 October 2004 | by (Brisbane, Australia) – See all my reviews

Mimi Rogers plays a high flying 'supermom' who relieves the stresses of being married to an aspiring politician (Andrew McFarlane) by repotting plants in her glasshouse whilst smoking. (Need I remind any of you that this is not a good idea, seeing as potting mix is full of nasties that can be deadly when ingested...)

The only thing that kept me going through this movie was the occasional glimpses of Ms. Rogers amazing huge bazoongas (sadly, clothed).

Anyway, blackmail, bla, bla, bla, by the character Tim (Tumera Morrison of 'Once Were Warriors' fame)and a couple of boring twists.

One fact that interested me about this movie was that it was shot in my home town of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia which made it slightly more bearable to watch.

Anyways, after you've caught a good look at Ms. Rogers bazoongas, change the channel.
