There must be too many TV channels.
30 September 2004 | by (Northbrook, IL, USA) – See all my reviews

The only purpose this piece of fluff serves is filling up TV airtime. Well, that and putting some easy money in the pocket of third-tier actress Tia Carrere.

I came across this while flipping through channels with nothing on (of course) worth watching. Tia Carrere is a Grade A you-know-what in "Torn Apart". She's a doctor, supposedly, but seems much more interested in traipsing around in power suits while snarling at everyone. Anyway, the ludicrous plot involves the fact that one of her prior patients died on the operating table and the deceased happens to have a ticked off relative. Said relative actually kidnaps the doctor's husband and daughter. Dr. Vicki Westin (Carrere) is informed that she has to make a decision: Choose which one gets to live and which one has to die. Ohhhhh! That's a good one that I've never, ever seen before in a film.

This was on the Lifetime Channel and perhaps this type of film plays much better to their target audience. You know, the type of viewer who fantasizes about being a doctor, having a perfect married life and is given the opportunity to kick the ass of some bad guys. Without giving it away, I guarantee you that the ending is both disgustingly predictable and 100% unbelievable. If there isn't anything worth showing then I think some of these TV channels should just close up shop. 1/10
