Storyline

Kansas City investment broker Karen Reese has had a long history of bad relationships with men. Her marriage to John Reese was short-lived because of John's controlling nature. It nonetheless resulted in a child, Karen who has custody of now nine year old Justin. John is largely out of Justin's life, which bothers Karen if only because of Justin's want for his father to be truly a father figure. Karen just broke up with her latest boyfriend Randy Stroud for many of the same reasons she broke up with John before him. Karen's sister, Donna Eckhart, believes Karen sabotages many of her relationships out of fear. Karen's boss, Alex, is interested in her romantically, but she believes he is too young for her despite his devotion. When Karen meets venture capital consultant Denis Teague, who is Karen's brother-in-law Lenny Eckhart's new work colleague, Karen thinks that her long streak of bad relationships may have come to an end. Denis is handsome and attentive. And after a rocky start ... Written by Huggo

Good enough for Lifetime
4 November 2008 | by See all my reviews

Karen has been on her own for six years. She has some sort of professional office job in Kansas City, and she has a son Justin who is in the fourth grade. She doesn't have the best track record with men. Justin's father Joe was too controlling and does not live up to his responsibilities to the boy. She is now getting flowers with a note saying they are from Randy. Her boss Alex seems to like her but he's kind of young.

Now Karen has found Denis, who is kind and caring, knows how to cook, and enjoys spending time with Justin, who took a while but eventually accepted Denis. They hunt butterflies together.

So what's wrong with Denis?

Maybe nothing. But Karen is lucky to have him, because those mysterious flowers from Randy are just the first of many strange developments. Her air conditioning keeps cutting off during a hot summer. There are strange noises in the attic which may just be squirrels. And then there are problems at work, including a mysterious illness. Is Karen losing her mind or is someone really trying to drive her crazy?

The biggest reason for a straight male to watch: Karen is quite good-looking and has long blonde hair. During the hot summer I mentioned, she wears revealing tops, except of course at work. Though she won't show off her legs, not even when jogging or sleeping. There is one scene where she is in a bathrobe and her legs do show, but if you blink you'll miss it.

For someone with my musical taste, there are the first two romantic scenes. Another romantic scene in the woods has generic background music (which is still enjoyable), and dinner with Denis and Justin has opera. No, thanks. I liked the jazz. I do mean jazz, not the "smooth jazz" women seem to like.

I don't know who any of the people in this movie are, but Kari Matchett seems to be a good enough actress. Karen is a strong character who has been through a lot and can stand up for herself when she has to. Peter Outerbridge does a good job too.

There is an interesting mystery to solve. Nothing that special, but entertaining enough. And minimal violence. I don't think there was any blood. Of course, sex is a requirement in these movies, but it is only implied.

If I have any criticisms, it is that Robert Benz as the detective seemed quite good in one scene and sounded like he was reading his lines at the end. I really wanted to say something good about him.

It's a woman-in-jep movie. If you like them, and I do, it's enjoyable.
