Storyline

Lucy Freers has a long-standing marriage, a nine-year old daughter, and a great family life in the suburbs of Hollywood. Great, that is, until the Hollywood set decides that motherhood is the newest way to go. When local neighbor Julia Prentice, the wife of a famous movie actor, adopts a baby in full view of the show-business media, the parenthood craze hits its peak. Soon after, Julia is found lying dead in Lucy's swimming pool, with Lucy and her husband labeled as suspects. Now Lucy must determine the truth to clear the name of both herself and her family.

Enjoyable
1 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

This is a pleasant and enjoyable little film about a children's book author who gets involved in some Hollywood murders and decides to try to solve them. Sort of "Murder, She wrote" with a younger protagonist.

Justine Bateman (Mallory of yore) is very relaxed and does well as this amateur detective.

There are some plot loose ends that never get resolved(for instance, why doesn't her husband Andrew Macarthy call her when he is out of town and who is the mysterious neighbor etc.) but it doesn't matter that much.

The film ends in a way that might suggest that they hope to make more of these stories and I wouldn't mind seeing more of them.
