Storyline

Tanya Sullivan (alias Sexykitten), mother of teenager Molly, with a crummy cosmetics sales job in Pittsburgh, meets over Internet a great gay, casino employee Joe Donnely (alias Jerseydude), an ex cop -made to resign after testifying truthfully against the PD- and divorced tender father of teenage son Teddy, who chose to live with him but preferred Rhode Island where his mother still lives. After months of hot mail, Tanya flies a first time to Atlantic City and they start to have hot sex. Once she's pregnant, she tells Joe she was abused by her wife-beating father, and is again by her husband Mark, a gangster. He realizes paternity is uncertain, but stands by her, and after threats and insults from Mark flies to Pittsburgh, with his gun; from then on everything goes horribly wrong...

Actions have consequences, even online.....
10 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was based on the true story of Tanya Sullivan, and how she set up an acquaintance she met while searching an online dating service.

Anne Heche is very good as the lead, a selfish, bored and somewhat disturbed housewife in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Eric Roberts becomes enraptured, he is a retired New Jersey cop who works as a pit boss in Atlantic City. His life has unraveled, and he sees Tanya as an answer to his depression.

While the locations and facts may have been altered to protect the guilty in this case, the story is intriguing in that we see the initial meeting, infatuation, and story-telling that often exists. Eric Roberts is a sympathetic character, in that he thinks he has found true love.

Overall a good story worth watching. 8/10.
