Storyline

Bobbi Bocha, a cynical private eye who says all men cheat, narrates a story that opens in Houston with a blond purposely running over a man multiple times with her car and then cradling his head as he dies. Flash back six months to the too-exuberantly happy Harris family - Clara and David are orthodontists with a thriving practice, a big house, twin boys who love Dr. Seuss, and David's teen daughter Amy, home from college. David hires Lisa, a klutzy, teary, recently-divorced woman, as a receptionist, and an affair quickly blossoms. Clara hires Bocha. Meanwhile, Bocha pushes her own daughter, who's about to get married, to see the downside. An elephant's faithful. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Sela Ward & Elizabeth Pena were Great
21 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Remember reading in the newspapers about this story from Houston, Texas when a wife decided to take the law into her own hands and run down her husband with a car. Sela Ward, (Bobbi Bacha) and Elizabeth Pena, (Dr.Clara Harris) both gave outstanding performances in their roles as friends who make plans to catch their husbands during play time.

Naturally, Hollywood did their very best to add all kinds of extras, such as affairs and a few brief love scenes and two girls who seem to have fallen in love with each other and found a new experience in their young lives.

This is more of a comedy than a murder and the entire film goes pretty flat for a story and even the ending is horrible.
