Storyline

Lacey Farrell is a Realtor in New York, whose latest assignment is to sell the apartment of a girl, who died in an accident recently. When she talks to the girl's mother she says that she thinks that her daughter's death was not accidental but murder. Later when she shows the apartment to a buyer, she finds the mother there and she says that she was right her daughter was murdered. Lacey and the buyer leave her alone. Later the mother calls Lacey asking her to come over so they can talk. When she gets there she finds the woman dead and the killer is the buyer. Before the mother dies she gives Lacey her daughter journal. Lacey turns it over to police but not until she makes a copy and gives it to the girl's father. Lacey is then told that the killer is a professional. The FBI then places her in Witness Protection. They relocate her to Minnesota and she brought with her a copy of the journal, and she reads it and the girl mentions a friend who lives in Minnesota. She then goes to a ...

"Pretend You Don't See Her" -- I wish to hell I could
24 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well, well, more cheezola from Grosso-Jacobson, from their ice pick music, trying to pass off Toronto as New York, and bad casting.

Very quickly, the story concerns a real estate broker, Lacey, (Samms) who witnesses the murder of an accident victim's mother. The mother believes it was no accident, and finds her daughter's diary pages to prove it. She gives those pages to Lacey before she dies. The killer is after Lacey, so she is sent into the witness protection program, where she tries to figure out what happened so that she can come home.

"Pretend You Don't See Her" is particularly funny. First, we have the beautiful Emma Samms, as British as they come, who has a sister with no British accent. Right off you know the attention paid to the casting. I don't know about the Mary Higgins Clark story - I like Mary Higgins Clark's novels. Her stuff is a fast read, but Agatha Christie she ain't. I mean, did she really have her main character, played by Samms, act like a MORON? Lacey is in witness protection and her sister begs, pleads for a hint as to where she is. She won't tell anyone. So Lacey (now pretending to be named Alice) gives her a hint which enables her sister to figure out her location immediately. And true to her promise, she doesn't tell anyone. She doesn't have to. She buys a newspaper from that city and has it sticking out of her purse wherever she goes so that EVERYONE can see it.

If only that had been the only dumb thing, but it wasn't.

I gave it a 5 because I got to hear a bunch of Italian tenor arias - Una furtiva lagrima, Di quella pira, La donna e' mobile, and Celeste Aida - playing in a character's restaurant.
