Great Fun!
13 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Since I've retired, I've started watching these Lifetime and Hallmark movies along with my wife. To my surprise, many of them are pretty good, especially this one. To me, the acting and production values were all perfectly acceptable and believable. In this story, revenge and justice are the primary motivations. I couldn't help but applaud the heroine's success in overcoming her cheating husband's boorish ways. It was fun watching him squirm on the witness stand. It was fun watching her knee-jerk reaction to the private eye who was also cheating her. It was fun watching her squirm in the bushes as she spied on her husband at the golf course. It was fun watching her shoot holes in her husband's luggage. And when her husband fakes a heart attack, it was fun watching her tell him that he had better go ahead and die, because he would be "stiff and stinking" before she ever called an ambulance. Regarding Lauren Holly's accent, it was more country than anything else, and it suited the character perfectly. All in all, this movie was fun and I enjoyed it. My wife and I think this would make a great TV series.
