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>

This movie had class, comedy, drama and was real !!!
2 February 2005 | by See all my reviews

This Movie had Class, Comedy, Drama and it was based on a reality. I would watch a series on this show if one were made. I was interested in more of the Blue Moon clients and other cases, as well as more about why Bobbi Bacha became a PI and a mother of three. I think the series would be excellent. We loved watching Sela Ward on the tractor following the cheatin Husbands. It was great.

The Harris story was tragic and Elizabeth Pena gave her character humanity, you could understand that Brett Cullen (David Harris) was leaving Clara because she was over controlling.

It was amazing to watch Bacha's daughter Cassie get married despite her father being a cheater, her mother catching cheaters and Clara Harris killing a cheating husband.

It makes me wonder why women even put themselves through marriage.

Would love to see Sela playing Bacha on a weekly basis. I can even see the Desperate Housewives calling Bacha to follow their husbands and kids.
