Could have been, would have been, should have been - it definitely wasn't, worth watching
19 October 2012 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

This is one of two Patricia Cornwell novels to film, i.e. "At Risk" and "The Front" that feature Andie McDowell as a Boston district attorney and are appearing on one of our lesser cable channels here in New Zealand. I would agree 100% that this is one of the worst examples of plot, direction, acting, and last but not least the use of schmaltzy music. It runs throughout the entire film to punctuate almost every scene as a filler or to let you know - hey this is a love scene. No one as yet has mentioned that Cornwell has a cameo as a waitress. That must tell you something. She's not only in the movie business now, she's in the movie. God forbid. Obviously she's gathered a huge following through the years and hopes to cash in on it and I can't wait to miss the next one.

(I was a great fan in her early writing days mainly because she was living in my hometown of Richmond, Va. and used locales that I knew well. Since then I've come to prefer British authors of the genre who seem to write better and the TV series that are made from their works are first class.)
