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
Or rather Clara. Pena stars as real-life Houston dentist Clara Harris who murdered her husband so memorably a couple of years ago -- caught on videotape -- by running his adulterous pig self over three or four times with her Mercedes in the parking lot of the hotel of his latest tryst with his mistress. Ward is the sassy PI who has become entangled in a web of cheats which led her to this fateful day. Cullen is the dirtbag husband, a tall, handsome & hunky yet perennial loser who gets his just desserts in notably graphic fashion. The film is a better-than-average TV movie with more than a few nods to "American Beauty" in its art direction and set up of this seemingly idyllic suburban paradise where filth creeps just below the surface. The church scenes are especially dripping in sanctimonious venom as these hypocrites in sheep's clothing go about their lives.
