Storyline

Overdomineering female police detective Jamie McDowell still tries to run her 19-year old only son Peter's life although he is a builder who lives alone. She strongly opposes his engagement to Kelly Shaw, who he doesn't know very long, and forces him to bring her to diner, where Jamie and mother Susan Shaw repeat that mistake. After Kelly provoked her ex-fiancé Ray Rankin in a bar 'to test Peter's love' again, they part in anger. That evening the mothers, who went out together, find Kelly burnt to death in Susan's house; an expert clearly concludes arson. To her horror, Jamie quickly finds the evidence seems to point at one logical suspect: her son Peter... Written by KGF Vissers

Poor Quality Chick Flick
30 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A waste of two hours. Try as hard as I can to be a supportive spouse; it was all I could do sit though this. The plot was thin and entirely predictable. There was little if any true chemistry between any of the major characters. The usual hackneyed stereotypes populate this movie-the gruff police captain, the stern African American female judge, the sleazy defense lawyer. The characters were all two-dimensional with no depth at all. No character development in a two hour movie. Most college film students could have done better. The melodramatic music did little to help the overall production.

No surprise outcome, no eleventh hour save. A waste of celluloid. Don't waste your time
