We'll see this script redone for A list money maker stars
18 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

There's a reason this is a "made for TV" movie, but it's okay! The peculiarity of this story is the use of what could almost be titled "neuro linguistic programming as the seduction weapon of choice for a passive sexual predator" -- it's a fascinating idea! That's why I say we'll see this script picked up by some Hollywood back room type and someone will rewrite it for A-listers to spice it up and program it for the mass market. The central character is a great invention, but still needs a page one rewrite to get rid of the glaring distractions that jolt the viewer out of the story and back in front the screen to be a pseudo movie critic instead of a movie goer. Oh well, it's still more fun and entertaining than 99% of the multi-million dollar blockbuster piffle. The contrived twists and "set ups" do not propel the story forward but cost dearly in terms of distractions that are just too succinct and convenient: at one moment, we're meant to be investing in character development and a circle of self-aware long time chums who've become couples, but then we're asked to believe they're dizzy-headed twerps just at the moment it serves the purposes of the plot. Oh well, I don't think the audience should be asked to forgive a "if only someone said the one thing that obviously had to be said" suspension of disbelief. At no risk of spoiling the plot in the least, I'll entice you to watch at least until the line "You should go away for a bit with Catrin." After that, it gets a bit "Mills and Boon" but it's still entertaining and you'll want to see it unfold, just for its gratuitous pleasuring of the audience.
