Not Worth Your Time
31 August 2001 | by (WI) – See all my reviews

The Clean and Narrow is not all that original or exciting and is not really worth watching. It's a story of an ex-con, Buddy (Jeff Noseworthy) who, after claiming he's going clean, gets involved in a botched robbery with 2 friends of his that leaves a man dead. The Sheriff and his Deputy (Paul Francis) go investigate and quickly figure the three as who they think did it, but without enough evidence to arrest them. The Deputy, meanwhile, has a long-standing crush on Buddy's wife, Marie (Laura Leighton), and while Buddy's away, tries to make advances on her, making himself the evil cop in the process. Buddy tries to hide his involvement in the crime from his wife, but has to find a way out of his predicament. As I said, the story isn't all that great, and the ending isn't a whole lot better. Laura Leighton, my favorite actress from Melrose Place (and the reason I bothered with the movie), does a good job as Marie. Overall, however, the movie isn't really worth the hour and a half it runs, so unless your a fan of Leighton, this is one to skip. I give the movie 3/10 stars.
