When Lacey is reading Heather Greco's journal, the voice-over refers to Ken Lynch, who is a character in the film. The writing on the paper, however, clearly says Tom Lynch in two different places. See more »
Uh, I guess this weekend was when I knew it was all over. I've had the feeling he was using me for awhile but now I'm sure of it. There were a bunch of us up at Stowe, skiing. Ginny, Jane Moore, Ken Lynch, Gary Kroll. Then afterwards he came up wanting us to be alone
that was no more true than anything else he's ever said to me.
Okay, so who's 'he'?
Ginny and Gary came back to New York and Ken he had to come home for his radio show today. That's when I got a call ...

"Pretend You Don't See Her" -- I wish to hell I could
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.
