A poorly disguised knockoff of Roman Polanski's FRANTIC (1988)
I found this made-for-TV movie to be a poorly disguised knockoff of Roman Polanski's film FRANTIC (1988). This one is a mostly slow moving "missing person" corporate conspiracy mystery.
Shannen Doherty (Lori) checks into a small-town hotel while her fiancé, a corporate accounting consultant, skips the check-in and goes straight to a meeting. He immediately goes missing and is not seen or heard from again until almost the end of the movie. "Lori's" frantic search to find her man begins... with frustrations at every turn.
This results in lots of meandering searching (virtually no dialogue) in the first hour and really makes the plot drag. Ho-hum. Fortunately, I watched it on my PVR (like TIVO) and resorted to using fast forward a lot.
The last half hour is more swiftly paced and leads to the happy outcome of the corporate baddie getting his just desserts. No big surprise there!
This is the kind of movie to watch on a rainy day at the cottage when you've watched everything else that you brought with you.
