Storyline

Emma's a succesful sale agent for a home security company, due in part to being the police chief's daughter. But her marriage is loveless and she suffers from the loss of her baby in childbirth. She's an artist, but hasn't picked up a brush in a year. Bret owns a small but successful art gallery, balancing aesthetics and business deftly. He's alone, but not lonely. Fate brings Emma and Bret together and they discover shared disdain for clients who collect art to impress others, follow the current trend or think only in terms of investment value. Bret has an idea that will push them both across lines they'd never seriously considered crossing. He proposes stealing artworks from her clients and convinces her that they could be quickly fenced. She resists at first. Her strong relationship with her father, Howard, is evident as she shares the hopelessness of her marriage. He supports her completely, particularly as she begins to paint again. Emma agrees to Bret's plan and the thefts are ... Written by Anonymous

Ah, well

ARTWORKS offers an interesting premise: a failed artist (Madsen) and a gallery owner (Rossovich) team up to steal paintings from the homes of the wealthy, all of whom are clients of the failed artist, who is currently employed as a home security specialist. Unfortunately, nothing particularly exciting or unusual emerges from this interesting plot line, and the all-too predictable ending rushes up on us, as if the filmmakers had run out of ideas or money, or both. Madsen is watchable, although considering she has several boudoir scenes, this gorgeous woman never completely disrobes, leaving this viewer greatly dissatisfied. Rossovich, who is miscast as a sensitive art lover, unfortunately does disrobe -- and shows no evidence of owning any underwear, which has to be a turnoff for anyone hygienically oriented, male or female. Daniel von Bargen, a great villain from many a past movie, here is miscast as Madsen's soft-spoken daddy, who just happens to be the chief of police. This has to have been made for cable. As such, one could have at least hoped for some steamy sex. If so, one will be greatly disappointed. It ain't here. Just some kissing and semi-clothed clinching that can be seen in any prime time TV show of the last 20 years. Hell, current late-evening, adult-oriented shows like RESCUE ME and NIP TUCK offer far better sex scenes.
