Storyline

Although he was the one to make the 911 call alerting the authorities to the situation, high profile businessman Devon Major is charged in the stabbing death of his ex-wife, Angela Major, the two who only recently got divorced. His story is that he received a telephone call from her to visit - he hoping that it was to reconcile - when he found her in her new home with a knife in the abdomen. Devon makes the surprise move of asking Angela's friend and divorce attorney Susan Grace, a former criminal lawyer, to defend him. His rationale is that he wants her to believe his story and as such when she tells the world of his innocence, it will truly absolve him in the eyes of the world without public skepticism. Although she still does see many of the reasons that Angela divorced him including that he uses his charm on women to do what he wants, Susan does believe him and does agree to defend him, largely to protect Angela's memory. District Attorney Kirsten Sorensen decides to try the case ... Written by Huggo

Painful
18 August 2005 | by See all my reviews

Utterly the most painful movie I have ever suffered through. I kept hoping that it would improve since it had Linda Purl; however, it just kept spiraling down hill. If you want something more entertaining try a root canal. This could have been a great movie if they had bothered to invest some money into actors who could carry this type of story line. It was just an endless parade of pretty faces "mugging" for the camera. Nor will it become one of those "bad" films that later becomes faddish due to its comically bad acting. This was just plain bad. Even after a while Linda's normally superb acting was lost in the damage. The sad statement is that each of these actors have done superb work in other films yet they just didn't have the edge to carry this story line.
