In my opinion, the story was underwritten, because considerable time was given over to the main character doing very routine things (presumably just to kill the film's allotted time). Context was a problem too. Unless people had watched every previous episode of the Jesse Stone collection, he or she would have a difficult time sorting out some of the characters and their motivations. The acting performances were pretty routine, with very occasional exceptions. The car dealer on the town council was more of a caricature that a character, in my opinion. A number of the conversations that occurred in the film were pretty much pointless, as they contributed nearly nothing to the story's development. I had the feeling that this movie was made solely to fill a TV time slot and that cinematic excellence wasn't even a consideration.
