Something seems to be missing
1 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You never know what you'll find when the dogs wake you at 3am. This interesting film-noir thriller was not as good as it could have been.

I like Michael T. Weiss as Jarod in "The Pretender." Of course, I liked Andrea Parker more. He tended to overact in this film and his haircut was atrocious. Normally, I wouldn't comment on something like that, but it was a definite distraction Peter Coyote played his partner who went to jail for murdering his wife and her lover. I always like Coyote and he was the best thing about this movie.

Maureen Flannigan (A Day Without a Mexican) as the hot daughter with a secret, added immensely to the action.

It was Flannigan's character that should have been built up more. We were not provided enough motivation and it left gaping holes in the story.

It was OK for 3am.
