Storyline

A film noir, psychological thriller in the vein of "Body Heat", "Basic Instinct", and "Double Indemnity", this film centers on two old friends and the woman who comes between them in a small American town. Money, lust, and obsession are American Standards, and even the tightest bonds are not immune to their pull. Written by Anonymous

Not a lot to recommend
5 January 2007 | by (Tulsa OK) – See all my reviews

I was watching the beginning of this on a Friday, mid-day, while working at computer at home, relaxing a bit after a hectic week, and cleaning-up some files and answering some communications. Got interrupted a couple of times, so had trouble getting all the details straight (although it's hardly a work of Hitchcock proportions, where missing a detail can through the whole story off-kilter), and besides it was not exactly an "engrossing" piece of work.

So during a commercial, read the only prior comment here (by "mgconlan-1"), and pretty much can agree with its details.

Not quite in the category of a film so awful it is fascinatingly "good," but I'd like to catch on tape when run again (rather than seeing it as aired), so I can fast forward as needed and see the parts which I missed this first time.

Give it a "3*" because of the attractiveness of the four primary characters.
