Storyline

Brilliant corporate lawyer Luther Simmonds accepted a major case in Miami so he can give a last chance to his love-affair with Cuban-blood attorney Margarita Silva Santos, who broke off their engagement years ago because her family expected a Cuvan Catholic groom. She's now happily married with devoted Ariel Silva, but may be exhausting is patience by putting off their child-wish again even now the made law-firm partner. Luther gets a hot night, but no clear commitment, while Ariel is kept in the dark, only her lady-friends are consulted. Her uniformed ma resorts to a ploy which forces the issue.

If this is the best that Vanessa Marcil can come up with, she'd be better off returning to the role of Brenda on General Hospital.

"One Hot Summer" is one non-hot mess. First of all, it was advertised as starring Casper van Diem. He was at best a supporting role. The story was about three Latina friends, focusing on Margarita (Marcil) and her husband. The three friends would have been a nice story, but it was too disjointed. It was always from Margarita's point of view instead of actually showing the women's lives.

As far as the Margarita storyline, it defied logic. On the day that she is made partner at her law firm, she also celebrates her fifth anniversary with her husband. He chooses that night to start nagging her about having a baby. And I mean NAG - including calling her on her cell phone when she's on the highway. This is a sensitive man her friends envy her for marrying? To make things more heinous, he and his mother-in-law plot to exchange Margarita's birth control pills for placebo. I don't know about you, but if I ever found out two people I was close to and trusted did that to me, they'd be gone from my life immediately.

Vanessa Marcil is a gorgeous woman, a cross between Sandra Bullock and Jennifer Lopez, and she was great on General Hospital. Here she doesn't show any range as an actress. I don't altogether blame her, because it's obvious the direction was bad.

What could have been a warm story was wrecked by illogical situations, bad dialogue, bad direction, and some bad acting.
