Insipid drivel
29 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The only redeeming feature of this movie was the acting by Eva LaRue Callahan. The story is hardly fresh (apparently the police in movie-land never listen to the news), the characters were flat as could be, the heavy handed backstory via "conversation" at the start of the movie between the sisters might as well have come via a Greek chorus for its subtlety, relationships were never fully examined... The "surprise" twist at the end was so obvious from the outset, again, where's the Greek chorus when you need it? The biggest problem the movie seemed to suffer from, though, was that it played like a mystery, with the focus being on the "crime solving" instead of the interpersonal relationships, but from the outset the writers basically told us who committed the crime. So instead of either trying to work it out with the police, or spending our time exploring the relationships between the characters, we end up wondering why they're so slow and dense. (And hello, the final scenes tying up all lose ends through more oral exposition is NOT giving your characters backstory and depth in any useful way.) Callahan, though, managed to give her character depth with the weakest of material, so while we never find out exactly why she and her sister were so incredibly close, we do feel it. This, along with hope that at some point the movie would get even a quarter of an inch below the surface, was all that could keep me watching. And as it ends, I'm wondering what I can do to get the last two hours of my Lifetime back.
