the usual and then a Hail Mary pass
16 April 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We all know Lifetime. For some of us it's like watching The Comedy Channel.

The formula is always the same: young, attractive people you've never seen before in one of the two or three plots Lifetime uses.

This one, The Good Mistress from 2014 is one of the pack. Sandy Cooper (Anne Heise), a recovering alcoholic on five years probation, who has a beautiful figure and beautiful hair, moves to a small town and takes a job at her best friend's (Kendra Anderson) law firm. She meets a guy (Antonio Cupo) right away and sleeps with him on the first date (if you don't count him running into her at the coffee place a date).

Just one small problem, which she finds out later. Her best friend is married to him. It gets worse.

Okay. First of all, why she would take an apartment with that sleaze landlord is beyond me. Second, she meets her best friend's husband who asks her out on a date? Sing one verse of "Small World, Isn't It." And of course there is the ubiquitous parking garage scene. We all know how women like to go into them alone.

At the last minute something elevates this film from a D to a C-. And for Lifetime, that's not bad.
