so so
30 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Gary Cole walks off with the acting honors in this silly movie. Add the poker face Rossif Sutherland as a detective and a bland female, also with one look on her face of Duh, played by Laura Harris. Cole at least gives some depth to his character and manages to keep things going in an inane script for LMN of course. The channel that rarely presents any worthwhile project. And who knows where they keep coming up with these female leads that are more attentive to their hair, tight clothes and looks of boredom. Harris is a typical LMN female lead that goes nowhere with this film and gives nothing as an actress. Sutherland does a little better, but Cole takes over the movie and does a splendid job of a sexual deviate. I give this 1 star for Cole's work.
