CEO David Wescott greatly appreciates his trusted office assistant Rachel Parsons's efforts to help out in the Wescott household too when he loses his wife, leaving his children semi-orphaned after an ailing disease. Rachel stops at nothing to make herself seem indispensable in both spheres, aiming for her boos's exclusive attention. She's confident a business trip to New york provides the perfect opportunity for her to propose, but realizing she schemed to intrude his intimacy, he puts her in her place, planting the seed for spiteful revenge at a corporate dinner.

3 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was terrible. The lead character Josie Davis was about a C- throughout the entire time. There was not one scene in which I found her believable or even interesting. And as soon as I saw Sophie Gendron walk on the screen, I groaned. Having suffered through a movie with her once before, I was hoping her role would be very brief. Ms. Gendron is badly in need of a coach, or perhaps another profession.

While these two roles were desperately in need of recasting, Chris Potter was absolutely fantastic. He played a difficult part, and did it exquisitely. Every scene of his had just the proper amount of inflection and purpose. He was completely believable and his contribution kept me from giving this movie fewer stars.

I also enjoyed Judith Manion, and think she did a great job. She and Chris Potter completely outshone the others.

However, this movie is not worth the two hours it took to watch to the end. Save your time and do something more worthwhile.
