Storyline

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 child semi-orphaned after an ailing disease. Rachel stops at nothing to make herself seem indispensable in both spheres, aiming for her boss'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.

Atrocious
1 October 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I can't believe I watched the whole thing. For fans of any kind of thriller or suspense films, or any kind of drama, you are going to be seriously disappointed with this one. We have all seen the "trusted assistant is nutty stalker" movie a hundred times, so we expect something different when a new version is foisted on us. Every single second of this movie was predictable, from the start to the finish. There is not one surprise. Based on other comments here I stuck it out to the end, but oh did I regret it. We've seen it all before. And on top of that, the dialog was just horrible. Nobody speaks that way, no, not even to themselves. I will remark that Chris Potter was one of the few good things about this movie. He is actually an actor with talent. I really don't know what his agent was thinking when they got him mixed up in this mess. He needs to fire that person ASAP.
