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...

Goofs

When Joe is meeting Tanya for the second time at the airport, he is seen carrying a bouquet of flowers for her. He then goes to the men's room, and the flowers are never seen again. This is not a goof because right before he enters the restroom, he walks by a trash can and the camera focuses on the trash can indicating that's where he put the flowers. See more »

Based On A True Story
20 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I caught this movie on the LMN TV channel.

Eventually I realized it is based on a true story. There's also an episode of the TV show 'Forensic Files' about this case called 'Web Of Seduction'.

In the real story these people met in the chat rooms on AOL which I used to go into quite often. However I didn't hang out in the types of chat rooms they met in.

People have to be careful when meeting people anonymously on the internet and then getting involved with them.

It's a good movie, especially by LMN standards, and is relevant for today's world where people meet on the internet. It starts out quite romantically.
