Simple Revenge With A Non-Simple Plot
1 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While this story is heavy on twists, turns, surprises and plot, it is a bit weak on motivation.

The opening scene in the film is overly detailed considering how little these characters have to do with the main storyline. In fact, it made me feel as if I were watching two entirely separate films.

The main plot revolves around a woman named Alex, played by Holly Perkins. Alex is a career woman, on the bad side of 45, with dyed red hair that is way too thin for the style she is trying to wear.

Alex thought she was going to move into a top position at the firm, but at the last minute the old geezer, who apparently owns the company, has changed his mind. Instead, the top position goes to a woman named Ann.

Alex than wastes no time in seducing Ann's new hubby, Jim. Jim is so ugly I don't know how any woman could bring herself to marry him, or seduce him.

Just how Alex thinks seducing Ann's husband is going to aid her very much remains a mystery - it's part of the weak motive of the character

  • which we see throughout this movie.




The consequences of seducing one's boss's husband generally would be: getting yourself canned and without a good recommendation, and breaking up the boss's marriage - while the latter might give a vengeful person some satisfaction it wouldn't make up for the loss of one's well paying job, I wouldn't think.

This initial transgression, however, is just a warm-up for our gal, Alex. There's more, much more. There are several murders, more seductions, and even a hint at lesbianism.

Throughout, Alex remains cool as a cucumber and able to spin yarns to the police that would make many a criminal pea-green with envy, I'm sure.

The film would have been better, however, if they had simplified it a bit, as eventually it goes completely over the top with twists and turns.

4 Stars Out of 10.
