If your time is important-DO NOT WASTE IT!
22 October 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Absolutely, positively, this movie has my vote as the stinker of the millenium. An absolutely abominal waste of time and talent to make this movie about a woman's fight to expose a police cover-up after they kill her ex-husband. This woman's fight takes her into the unbeliveably extraordinary step of compromising herself to get the truth out (I won't say what she did) about what really happened the night that her ex-husband was killed. My rating for this dud is 0.1 out of 10, and that 0.1 is only because Dana Delaney is so sexy!
