Typical movie...little bit of organized crime, lot of commercials
8 April 2008 | by See all my reviews

Based on a true story of a widowed woman who tries to take advantage of "the perks" in organized crime in order to raise her sons, Milano does her best to stay out of the spotlight with the FBI while "dancing on the fence" with the new man in her life.

This TV movie would probably rate higher with me, if it weren't so cliché. I'm a fan of Milano, but I found it predictable, not to mention boring, since 25% of the time devoted to the time slot was filled with commercials. I realize commercials pay for the film, but am I not paying for my cable TV? At one point, there was a 4 minute station break, 8 more minutes of film, followed by 5 more minutes of commercials. I guess it shows how promising this film is when I find more time to concentrate on how long this movie is, instead of its plot line.
