Storyline

Scott Baio, ex-child star in real life, plays a young man who goes to visit an old friend of his who resides in California. His friend's got it all: Nice house, great car, lots of neat accessories, friends, and, or course, women. But after Baio's friend mysteriously disappears, and Baio suspects foul play in a boating accident, Baio adapts to the persona of his friend for a while. But this idea backfires when the bad guys who killed his friend start coming after Baio, thinking they didn't succeed in their job. Or is that what it's all about?

Good entertaining value
20 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

It begins as a "buddies movie " but the viewer feels there's an ambiguous Relationship between the two men .One of them welcomes his pal in a luxury apartment and treats him like a king ;but his words do not ring true.

The screenplay is not that predictable and if it enters sometimes the Highsmith/"talented Mr Ripley" territory when a character takes a would be friend's name,the developments are suspenseful and the ending (one of the female characters alone justifies the very title of the thriller) The script may seem simple ,but it makes sense (no open ending ,no unanswered question) ,and considering some of today's "unexpected twists","face value" is to be recommended .
