Decent but nothing spectacular
7 March 2000 | by (Cleveland) – See all my reviews

Say what you want about Kari Wuhrer, when she tries to be she can be a fine actress. She works very well as a woman desperate to keep her place as the dominant focus in her friend's life. It is wonderful to see Farrah Forke again (remember her in Wings?). Unfortunately, the cast around them is sub-par and the script seems to be missing something, especially in the beginning. If the setup had been a little more in depth, this could have been an excellent little sleeper. As it is, there are fine performances by Wuhrer and Forke but little else to back them up. Could have been superb, but it settles for being run of the mill.
