Anne Archer turns investigator to uncover the truth...
22 January 2000 | by (Venezia) – See all my reviews

This TV movie has some ok actors like Anne Archer, James Russo, and Maria Conchita Alonso, but the movie itself is typical of USAesque TV movies. Anne Archer plays a dead cop's wife who finds out some interesting details about her late husband's life. This sets her off on a detective on to uncover the truth.

The relationship between her and her daughter is somewhat comical, just the typical teenage mother-daughter dilemmas mixed in with lower-middle class life struggles. However perhaps the best aspect to the movie are the Long Island accents, particularly Anne Archer's.

The movie is formulaic and cheesy, but it's what you'd expect to get on a Friday night, or Sunday afternoon while you're checking out USA. Overall you should stay away unless you're a connoisseur of TV movies, especially the USA variety.
