Dodgy car salesman Bill Rander runs a racket with the help of his devoted orphaned nephew Jeremy.

Absolutely awful
19 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was immensely disappointed at this halfhearted effort to produce a thriller/crime story. I was expecting some well developed characters who have more than one dimension and an interesting plot.

What I watched was nothing like that. Instead, the characters are like paper cutouts with no depth. The main character is just too good to be real. Always perfectly coiffed, even after getting out of bed. Her husband is a no-good philanderer with a failed business. Her father is caricature from the Andy Griffith Show.

The basic plot has some interesting potential, but the film makers just didn't have enough guts to find it.

I just don't recommend this to anyone who wants to be entertained with a creative and thought provoking film.
