Very good soap/mystery
12 August 2008 | by See all my reviews

If Marianne's marriage to Richard is so perfect, why does she need to have an affair with Christopher? Or is it Brent? There's a lot Marianne is keeping secret. The movie starts with a couple of chilling scenes from Marianne's past.

Richard's secretary Carrie worked hard to plan a party, but Carrie isn't even invited and she doesn't feel appreciated. This will become important later. At the party Marianne meets Tia, the head of public relations, and her "date" Kendra. Tia's boyfriend resents that she considers her work more important than her relationship, so she brings her sister. Marianne invents a past, but Tia and Kendra later find they must investigate that past to protect Richard.

Richard and his father run the company, and Marianne has the chance to kill the father and get a big inheritance. Actually, Richard has a heart attack, and Marianne could stand there and do nothing, but the company is on the verge of a major deal which will mean the company is worth even more--provided the father lives. Later, Marianne can once again use the poison we saw her use earlier, and no one will know the difference. We know it will make people think the person had a heart attack but leave no trace. That's IF she gets to use it.

The plotting and the investigating are quite interesting, and there is real excitement toward the end. There are romantic scenes as well, but I didn't enjoy those as much.

I have seen clips of Jamie Luner in other shows, but I have only seen full episodes of "Just the Ten of Us" and "Growing Pains", from which the sitcom spun off. Both are regarded as evidence that TV is garbage, but I enjoyed them. I would not have recognized the girl who I knew as the adorable brainless teen who wasn't as hot as her sister. She's actually quite good. Not over-the-top nasty, but deceptively ordinary.

There are a lot of good performances here. Sophie Gendron is gorgeous, especially in that hot dress she wears to the party, but also when dressed professionally. But the important thing is she has brains and determination. And the father (apparently Lawrence Dane) does an impressive job as well.

A very good effort.
