No shockers
9 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought this was a good movie, but could only give it a five. It was just too predictable. I knew as soon as I saw Brittany that she was real and the husband was behind her being there. I also found the movie to be quite implausible.

It was pretty clear that Lacey's character was really off at the start, and then all of a sudden she was perfectly normal with no reasoning. It was never made clear how she figured out the husband's plot, one assumes that Brittany told her. Why would Brittany turn on the husband in favor of the wife? Either way she was getting paid.

I find it hard to believe that Ethan's character could be turned into a pill-popping psycho in a matter of hours, and all his doctor friends turned on him in a second.

It was great seeing Jacob Young. Love him!
