Storyline

Ben Keller is sort of a bumbler who carries a torch for Lucy, a co-worker he's known since childhood. She's indifferent until he wins $36 million in the Iowa lottery; trouble is, he murdered the young woman who bought the ticket (it's not his first murder), but the mercenary Lucy doesn't discover Ben's secret until their honeymoon. She figures out that he murders women who look like her, so she's probably safe: she'd like to wait for the next lottery check to come in the mail, then run away. Ben knows she knows and wants her to love him anyway. With a police detective sniffing around and Ben's protective mother watching things carefully, can Lucy make a great escape?

Goofs

When Grace finds the 2nd check and opens the envelope the check is correctly made payable to Benjamin Keller, however the 'Authorized Signature' is also Ben's name (signature) (which also looks like a handwriting font as the 2 L's and E's in Keller are exactly the same) See more »

Quotes

Grace: You seem like such nice people. Such nice people!
Ben Keller: We're still nice people, Grace, but we're also in love. And love's kinda scary. I'm starting to realize that now.

Interesting premise, annoying characters
9 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I kind of wished Lucy died she was that annoying...and greedy.

Colin Hanks was fine but he played a wet doorknob.

Ending was a little off and slightly unbelievable.

It missed the mark of being a twist because it was underwhelming.

There should have been more development between mom and son because I still have some unanswered questions and their relationship was more interesting.

I don't recommend this movie, but if you need to kill some time go for it.

I'd rather watch reruns of Murder She Wrote.
