Review Contains Spoilers! Watched this movie the other night. Don't know what it is about these Lifetime movies that draw me in- the suspense,the high drama who knows. Unlike the previous reviewer, Mr. Fisher, I did not find the movie as abysmal as he did. The acting was decent for a made for TV movie and there was a fair amount of suspense. In particular, I liked the acting of the son, Alex House, he played a good confused teenager. That being said, I always find myself nitpicking for things because in made-for-TV movies, there is usually something to nitpick about.
1) What is with Brandy Ledford's right eye(the actress who played Kathryn)? It droops throughout the movie. She must have had an infection or something. But if that is supposed to be alluring, it doesn't work.
2) So Allison's plan to kill her husband was to run him off the road while he was bicycling so it would look like an accident. How is that a surefire way to kill anyone? What if he didn't die? Was she going to back over him with her Honda Element? 3) How in the world would anyone be so lucky to commit murders without any witnesses whatsoever? Jordan apparently parks in the middle of nowhere after a 'rally' and no one witnesses Allison's hit and run-even though she stops and stands over his lifeless body for some time.
4) How completely isolated to the world is Brian's sister Jordan. I get that she is a 'free spirit' and has no parents. But doesn't 'anyone' give a care that this woman has gone completely missing- co-workers at least? Wouldn't it be natural that after a couple of weeks they would try to contact her brother's fiancée or send the police to talk to her? I mean that could have been a little wrinkle in Allison's plans if the police or co-worker came by and figured out that the model looking Allison was not Granola Jane Jordan.
Those nitpicks aside, it was a pretty decent TV thriller. I guess the only other nitpick is that a more dramatic ending would have been nice. There are two types of endings for thrillers- the Fatal Attraction- you think the crazy person is dead, but they revive and attack you repeatedly or, as in the case of this movie, the person hits their head and goes unconscious. I would have liked a Fatal Attraction ending where Allison gets up and attacks Kathryn, the son magically revives and the two of them grip the gun and shoot Allison together- truly showing that mother and son have reunited and bonded during this difficult trial for them both. But I guess you can't have everything :)
