Storyline

In the perfectly normal town of Louisville, KY, there is a perfectly normal man living the perfect life. David Dailey is a man who has it all: A great career, a community that adores him, and an enduring marriage. But beneath the surface, David's idyllic world is crumbling. He's haunted by a series of mysterious notes that warn of an imminent fall from grace. His sultry wife Susan is hell-bent on expanding the horizons of their sex life - with or without him. His longtime assistant Whit is gunning for his job. And he finds himself increasingly attracted to Melody Carpenter, a curious stranger he instinctively trusts because she doesn't know him well enough to betray him. Complicating matters, Melody's jilted boyfriend Sean, a charming and talented trust fund baby, regards David and Melody's fledgling friendship with contempt. As his jealousy seethes deeper, he concocts a devious plan to win her back, unaware his overly protective father has ordered his number one ally to keep an eye ...

Don't waste your time!
30 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

At first I wasn't going to bother reviewing this flick because I thought this was the director's first film and he may improve or something, but then I read here that he also directed "Nice Guys Sleep Alone", which I haven't seen, so I may as well say something.

If you can't write- don't make a film!

This guy can't write (stupid plot, bad dialogue), so he should have

gotten a screenplay- there are people who would do anything to get their scripts made into films.

Thank God, I took this DVD out from the library so I didn't lose any money on it, and I practiced technique exercises on the guitar for 90 minutes while watching it, so my time wasn't completely wasted.

We thought at least this guy must have a religious affiliation (like the classic "Exorcism", or one of the producers of "Plan Nine From Outer Space")that he was trying to brainwash people with, which would at least account for some reason why this film was made, but nothing was revealed on the special features of the DVD, so I guess the guy is just dumb.

I don't have the stamina to watch it again with the director's commentary, but I'm sure that there must be a few agoraphobics, shut-ins, or people under house arrest here who would gladly give up 90 more minutes of their lives to tell us which cult the director belongs to and why he made this film.
