Storyline

Beautiful and spoiled high-school student Devon Cory always gets what she wants. This time, she wants her handsome math teacher, Jim Wilkes, and when Devon sets her sights on the recent divorcee, she makes every effort to insinuate herself into all aspects of his life, including coming in between him and his girlfriend, Rachel. As Devon's obsession with Jim grows, it becomes clear she won't take no for an answer and will stop at nothing to secure his affections. Unfortunately for Jim, it might be too late before he realizes that Devon is hardly the perfect student he thought she was. Written by Anonymous

Decent movie, but hasn't the kind of story been seen before??
18 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just watched this film on Lifetime & I could already predict everything about it. The basic synopsis is a teenage girl falls for her teacher from school & after a while becomes obsessed with him & goes to enormous measures to make him hers. Megan Park does a pretty good job at playing the alluring villain, but like I said, it's been done before. This film was so much like The Crush (the film with Alicia Silverstone from 1993) that it lacked very little surprises or suspense & very well could have been called The Crush 2. But, as I said before, this film, even though predictable, is still rather enjoyable with some pretty good acting & is a good way to waste a couple hours in front of the TV, just don't expect very many surprises in this Made for TV thriller.
