Elizabeth is married to Thomas, a prominent doctor. He has been abusing her. One day while out with a client, John Davis, he tells her that he was hired by her husband to kill her. It seems that she wants a divorce and Thomas would rather see her dead than let her leave him. Now John observed her before actually doing it and discovered that she was not the woman her husband described, so he decides to help her. He wants her to pretend to be dead so that when he gets his payment, he could get Thomas to incriminate himself on tape. Though uncertain at first, she realizes that he is telling her the truth. But she finds it unbearable to be away from her children and Thomas doesn't pay John right away. So she has to pretend to be dead longer than expected. Written by
Standard made for TV movie that is mediocre at best
The movie starts out okay. I like Joanna Kearns so thats what made me stop on the channel in the first place.
The TV synopsis says "After a woman decides to file for divorce from her manipulative husband, she learns that he has hired someone to kill her.". I like crime dramas so I decide to watch.
Tim Matheson puts on a good portrayal as the would-be hit man. He convinces her to "play dead" until he can get the money from her husband, then he will give her all the evidence (taped conservations) so she can get her husband convicted.
Well, about half way through the movie, the dialogue starts getting pretty lame between the wife and hit man. They apparently start having feelings for each other. Give me a break. The man is a hired assassin. You think any normal would look past that little deal breaker? I quit watching when the movie started taking that direction.
