how bout "too stupid to be real!", 23 September 2003
Author: mcfly-31 from anaheim, ca

I just couldn't help it on this one. Having moved to the UK two months ago, none of the tv over here effected me. This thing, though, oh man. I must say the filmmakers did their job. As inane, unreal, and downright brainless as this story was, I couldn't turn it off. It deals with a couple who have been divorced for four years. When she finally moves on with a guy she met off the internet, her ex all of sudden loses his mind and starts obsessing about her. Why now??? He's married to a much hotter, younger brunette, and the fact that his sanity would unhinge four years down the line was the first head-slapper in the story. But it's not just him. His new wife, the ex-wife, her new lover, and even the kids(!) all are COMPLETE morons. The new wife doesn't mind the husband standing outside staring into space cuz he's hung up on the ex; the ex almost considers getting back with him after he slaps her!; she's a booze-swigging, cigarrette smoking smartass; her new guy snatches at her, spilling wine everywhere when she wants to break it off; and even one of the kids hounds the mom when she finally takes the dad's key back!!! I was yearning to throw eggs at the screen for every idiotic action a character would make. I will give the director this: she really knows how to build good suspense. Two scenes come to mind: the surprise in the alley, and the obligatory--but still tense--final confrontation. She really had it jumpy in an old horror movie fashion in the end. But far too many silly or just plain irrational behaviors (especially the Davison character) totally sink this otherwise interesting premise.
