A Weak Cast Offering Weak Performances In A Dreadful Movie
By the time "Second Chances" is finished, all you wish is that you had a second chance to live the hour and a half wasted on watching this. This is truly a dreadful movie, composed of a weak cast offering weak performances playing uninteresting characters filled with meaningless sub-plots and a main plot that was poorly developed and not that interesting. It's supposed to be about a former reporter filled with remorse about not helping the police capture a serial killer years before who is suddenly being targeted herself. Why, then, did we need to know about her former marriage - replete with flashbacks? Why, then, did there have to be a past romance between her and the cop on the case? Why, then, did there need to be this irritating professor at the college she's hired to teach ethics in journalism at who adds nothing to the story and offers perhaps the worst performance of a bunch of bad performances? Why, then, did she even need to have a son? And - my pet peeve - why did this Canadian movie have to pretend to be an American movie by placing itself in Cambridge, Massachussetts? (I mean, Kate could just as easily have left Toronto to teach in Peterborough.) On behalf of all Canadians, I apologize to the people of Cambridge for setting such a dreadful movie in your city. Those who put out this movie should now apologize to us all. 1/10
