Into the small law offices of unlucky-in-love Charlotte St. John stumbles a handsome stranger, bloodied and battered, suffering amnesia. The good Samaritan, she cares for him, nurses him to health ... and falls hard for this mysterious angel. He reciprocates -- and good love finally finds Charlotte. But not for long, for their brief love affair hits the rocks when his identity is uncovered. Together they learn to their heartbreaking disappointment that he's already married ... twice. That's right, he's an amnesiac who forgot his was a bigamist. Though initially crushed that her perfect hero is just another perfect schmuck, Charlotte soon agrees to defend him against the bigamy charges, arguing that his injury has wiped out his former personality. In mounting her defense, she investigates his past ... and discovers that his vengeful wives may have uncovered his dirty bigamist secret months before -- and secretly plotted his violent downfall!

Frisky mystery-lite with some good twists but a silly second-act...
19 September 2006 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Molly Ringwald (looking a bit heavy and unhappy) is a general practice lawyer in a seaside town who defends a handsome amnesiac on trial for bigamy and tax evasion. TV-made mystery has a lightly comic, frisky side and a direction with some imagination. Ringwald is well-cast as a somewhat-kooky modern working woman who can't find a good man, although her frumpy clothes and hairstyle make her appear much older than she is--and older than her character has to be. The movie ends up scrambled like an egg, with a cartoonish version of a courtroom trial in the second-half and an iffy final tag that leaves the whole thing feeling a bit pointless. Molly has some choice scenes, and it's good to have her carrying a film again (TV or otherwise), but she's wound up too tight, and might've benefited from some improvisation, a looser director, or just some breathing room to control her tics and exaggerated facial expressions. The flick is a fun time-filler, though a wispy-thin one, without even one foot grounded in some kind of reality. **1/2 from ****
