When the film started production, Andrew Luster was still at large after having been convicted in absentia of 86 counts of rape, poisoning and drug possession and sentenced to 124 years in prison. The film was supposed to end with a picture of the real Andrew Luster, asking the audience to notify authorities if they should see him. On June 20, 2003 Andrew Luster was captured in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, while the film was still shooting. The ending was re-written to incorporate Luster's capture. See more »
I was a big fan of "The Practice" until recently (due to the cast cuts, including Marla), which is one of the main reasons why I wanted to watch this film - loved Marla's work on the show and her character Lucy. Another reason is just because it looked so good - and it WAS! I'd have to agree with the above poster that states some of the content is explicit, but all in all it was great! The ladies gave wonderful performances. If you missed it, don't worry - Lifetime repeats like crazy. If you get the chance, you should definately sit down and watch. Two thumbs up!
