Unable to count on estranged husband Wayne the women must use their wits to stay alive. Written by
Tom Cavanaugh rocks! Wonderful performances throughout.
I saw this at the Ft. Lauderdale festival. I found it really entertaining.
On the bad side, the script seems very uneven and corny in places, the opening is like a TV movie with Melissa Gilbert baking cookies for the church or something. But once the story starts being about the escaped convicts it's really fun to watch. The other two convicts are played by Mark Brown and Ritchie Montgomery. Ritchie is the most fun in the show. Every time he opened his mouth the crowd laughs.
Melissa Gilbert is better than average in this, it seems like she's really trying to get rid of her old TV actress image. But I found her costume really distracting. What woman facing 3 desperate convicts would dress so sexy?
The rain and wind and hurricane stuff is really amazing for a movie with an obviously low budget. The music is really good, kind of Cajun.
Would people pay $12 to see this at a theater? No. But I'll sure watch it again when it comes to TV.
