Storyline

Wall Street golden boy Ted Ammon falls madly in love with sassy saleswoman Generosa Rand, marries her and wants to start a family. After, not being able to conceive, the couple try other methods to bear a child. After, those methods fail, they adopt twins. A boy and a girl. Ted, realizes she has a mental illness, which he wants her to seek help for. She refuses to do so. She thinks Ted is saying she is crazy, like her mother.. During a bitter divorce procedure, she spends millions just to spite him, however accommodating he swallows absurd terms, and still tries to turn both kids against Ted, while cheating on him with dodgy contractor Danny Pelosi, who has a criminal record. After Ted dies in suspicious circumstances, Generosa turns against Danny, just as meanly, in favor of an English nanny/nurse once Generosa is diagnosed with terminal cancer. Written by KGF Vissers

Murders just don't happen in the Hamptons!
12 July 2005 | by See all my reviews

***SPOILERS*** Made for TV movie about the brutal murder of multi-millionaire banker/financier Ted Ammon,David Sctcliffe, and the twisted logic that lead to that crime by his estranger wife the former Generosa Rand, Poppy Montgomer, and her boyfriend and later husband Danny Pelosi, Shawn Christian.

Having what had to be the perfect marriage both Ted and Generosa had everything that a couple could want. A ten million dollar waterfront home in the exclusive Hamptons out in Long Island NY, the playground of the rich and famous on the east coast, and a palace almost the size of Buckingham in jolly old England.

With Generosa not being able to conceived the Ammons adapted two beautiful children twins Alexa and Gregory, Alliasen Misclone & Mitchell Nye, and then settled down with Ted starting his own financial firm which was highly successful and Generosa becoming a full-time housewife and part-time artist.

The one thing that was wrong, fatally wrong, with the Ammon's "Perfect Marriage" was Generosa's deteriorating mental state which had her erupt over the most minute details in her life with Ted like a slight variation of colors of the tulips planted in the Ammon estate's backyard. Incident like that lead to the disintegration of their marriage and the death/murder of Ted Ammon.

Suspicious beyond belief Generosa had Ted followed all day by private detectives at his job showing Ted photos of him and a woman, who worked at his firm, and connecting them with him having an illicit affair with her. Generosa even accusing Ted of having a baby with the woman just about convinced him to move out of the house. Ted soon came to realized that Generosa was insane just like her mother was.

While working out divorce papers with her and Ted's lawyers Generosa and the kids moved out of the Hampton estate and bought, with Ted's money of course, a nine million dollar apartment in Manhattan. It was there where she met fell in love and involved in her husbands murder the ruggedly handsome Danny Pelosi who was working as a construction contractor at her new apartment.

True story with a penetratingly performance by Poppy Montgomer as the unstable Generosa Ammon who's paranoia lead not only to her marriage dissolving but to the death/murder of her husband the hard working and loving family man Ted Ammon. David Sctcliffe is just as good as miss. Montgomer as the ill-fated Ted Ammon who despite giving in to almost all of Generosa's demands in their divorce, all Ted wanted was the house in the Hamptons and visiting rights to the children. Despite getting everything that she wanted Generosa just had to have him killed to be able to "live" with herself and Danny. Shawn Christian as Danny Pelosi is both scuzzy and, in his own way, likable at the same time.

Even though Danny had a criminal record that includes violence he never mistreated Generosa or the children, as well as his own kids that he had from his previous marriage. In fact both Alexa and Gergory genuinely liked Danny and excepted him as their father after he married Generosa.

It was Generosa who had to push a noticeably reluctant Danny to murder Ted and in the end it was she who, in an ironic twist of fate, got off Scot-free due to her dying of cancer and it was Danny who ended up getting 25 to life in the state pen.
