Nothing that special here
23 July 2009 | by See all my reviews

On July 4 at the beach, a man with an Uncle Sam mask picks up a duffel bag that was dropped in a trash can as bait. All of a sudden numerous undercover cops are after him.

Uncle Sam ends up at a fireworks show and makes a few fireworks of his own.

Meanwhile, Kate Grayson--wearing a backless dress--is celebrating the reopening of her father's elegant restaurant, Grayson's, which is on the beach near a pretty lighthouse.

Kate goes home to Ben, a detective who doesn't seem ready to commit to her. After one year, he still hasn't moved any of his stuff in, and he still has his own place.

The next day Kate is driving and uses her cell phone to find out how well the restaurant did the previous night. Uh-oh! She hits someone! Never use your cell phone while driving! Gil Draper is homeless and needs a place to recover, so Kate lets him live in a storage room at her fabulous mansion. With her dollhouse and other valuable items.

Gil seems to recover fast. He's very helpful around the house, and very charming, as he tries to pay Kate back. Ben is not happy, although he does try to make friends with Gil.

Eventually, things start happening. You just knew they would. And, yes, Uncle Sam is involved. There is an exciting chase involving motorcycles. There is violence, but it's not too bad.

I can't say the movie is that good, but Stefan Lysenko gives a better performance than most. There are a few enjoyable scenes even before the weird stuff. Angie Everhart looks good, especially in her jogging outfit.

The movie starts with closeups of the dollhouse, which has a lot of intricate detail and looks really fancy. It's more like a miniature mansion. From the music, you already know this movie with be eerie. and we keep seeing that dollhouse, as if it will play some important role.

Eventually we are rewarded, sort of. It's just a Lifetime movie.
