The story line isn't so bad, but just about everything else in this TV flick is. Uninspired acting, stereotypical characters and sophomoric writing all wrapped up in a series of trite clichés. You also get mediocre sound and lighting plus capricious editing at no extra charge along with memorable lines like, "I don't know what to believe anymore" and "Mom, you've always told me to follow my dreams".
The main characters, Mira Sorvino and Scott Foley, which you expect to develop some sexual tension never really connect. The dialog between them seem to be mostly flippant one liners and stock "detective speak" plucked from rejected episodes of CSI. You wonder why some of the other characters, like Anthony Lemke are even part of the story. They just seem extraneous.
The promos lured me in and I suffered through the first night, but will skip the finale.
