I generously gave this 'film' a '2' because the acting was fair. The lead has to be a knockout and a mystery writer; so many women are successful today. NOT! And...they are often novelists.
A person suspected of murder, especially one who is wealthy and drives a BMW, rents a lovely house in a small town, would hire a defense attorney ASAP. She wouldn't go around risking her beautiful persona and leering at much younger men. Is she just another cougar? Is this what middle-aged women do today? Is sex all they care about? I guess that's the modern woman.
All of us sensitive men are just 'love meat,' a quote from a Neil Diamond concert before he sang 'Play Me.' And, he was serious.
Then, we have the obligatory black in the film, a car dealer. Can we ever have a film or TV ad without a black person? Blacks are only 12% of the U.S. population but they comprise about 90% of the commercials and movie roles.
The lead actress, Dina Meyer, is very attractive, but she belongs in porn films on the internet. In fact, there is a synopsis on Time Warner that states 'nudity.' I never saw any nudity, but I DID miss the first 19 minutes of the film.
Why did I bother watching the entire film? I was waiting for Dina to undress and get naked, like the synopsis read. Otherwise, it had no redeeming social value. This is a film for fat, ugly women who sit on the couch all day and eat chocolates.
