I decided to watch this partly because of Dana Delaney and partly because the basic idea seemed interesting. It was, however, a mistake.

The movie got very bad towards the end, as the characters and their behaviour became more and more unrealistic and unbelievable. I can't get over the thought that people who made this movie actually may think that these characters would be interesting and/or thought-provoking or anything else that movie characters are supposed to be. The plot was quite weak as well, but the character development was by far the worst I've seen in a long time. It was a bit painful to see ms Delaney in such a poor film, as I've liked all her previous work very much.
