Dawn Cottrell (Peterson) seems like a typical sixteen-year-old girl, but she has a very dangerous secret. Unable to express her true feelings, whenever Dawn is upset she grabs a knife and cuts herself.
While vacationing in Cape Cod, Julie, six months pregnant, and her boyfriend Trent get caught up in a scandal when Trent is kidnapped by a mysterious man, and Jonathan - Julie's husband - is forced to pay the ransom.
Depressed housewife learns her husband was killed in a car accident the day previously, awakens the next morning to find him alive and well at home, and then awakens the next day after to a world in which he is still dead.
It states in the ad that it's a film where an attractive woman vies against a corporation and takes over. First of all, she's not that attractive. Believe me. Georgia Craig plays the role and she's far from pretty. In fact there's a scene where she puts the make on this old geezer. It couldn't have been a worse choice. To think he must have been that desperate to go after the likes of her. With stringy hair and a nose that points towards mecca, she's quite homely. Let's forget her and move on to the dullest performance in the film. That of Sean Young. Blank expressions and monotone voice make her the most uninteresting character in the movie. Why the husband would want to stay with her and why the bimbo would want to kill for her is beyond me. Ari Cohen, the husband, is the victim here. Both as the actor and the character.
Then we have two idiot detectives that have to be a joke. Mutt and Jeff seem to bungle everything. That they represent the law is a laugh and embarrassing to the viewer.
So, bad script, bad casting, bad acting make this a ridiculous movie not even for desperate audiences that have nothing else to do. Better to read a book, folks.
