A Sibling Causes Horrible Trouble
24 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a very entertaining film in which human life was taken at the drop of a hat. William R. Moses,(James/Max) "Hangman's Curse",'03 was a very successful CEO and had very little time for his wife and spoiled son. All of a sudden a very close relationship appears and turns his entire life upside down and causes all kinds of problems. However, James's wife, Barbara Niven,(Sandy Kennington),"The Drone Virus",'04, seems to enjoy the different changes that go on in the bedroom and how James has become so very romantic and attentive to her desires. If you look close, you will see Mindy Cohn,(Toni), "Facts of Life Down Under",'87 TV Series, who is a secretary to Sandy Kennington. There are lots of thrills and chills in this film and the story line is outstanding.
