"We're Ryders"
24 March 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

With those two words Nancy Marchand sums up her view of the world. Her upper class family has its own set of values and standards and it sure doesn't involve associating with people of different backgrounds and religion. Values she instills in her idiot son John Bedford Lloyd.

It's both a good and a bad thing that Lloyd is born so wealthy. He's got mother Nancy Marchand's money, influence, and connections to keep him away from prosecution in the beating death of his wife and mother of his children which by the way he tries to fake as part of a mugging pattern. I will say though that Paul Sorvino and Chris Noth get very lucky in finding a witness that can swear Lloyd knew about the other crime so as to fake it.

With Ryder connections though both Michael Moriarty and Richard Brooks have a bad time trying to get this one prosecuted. Let's say some severe justice is given to more than one Ryder.
