Clumsy industry film
1 July 2004 | by (Hell!) – See all my reviews

This movie was bad. The story was clumsy, it made no sense the way the main characters would behave from one scene to the next. The cast was good for the most part; Lindsay Crouse and Paige Moss were a believable mother/daughter. Zoe McLellan may have been hamstrung by the bad story or maybe she is a bad actress, I'm not sure. Jay Thomas is like Robert Horry scoring reliably for the LA Lakers, a talented veteran underused. The way that lighting and music is used to try and create tension brought me mirth instead. This film is horribly clichéd and very predictable. I cannot compare it with any movies without giving the whole movie away. After ten minutes the viewer will know already how things are going to end. I found this movie boring indeed. It is only watchable if you are a fan of the elusive Paige Moss, or of one of the other stars.
