Storyline

It's the beginning of the Labor Day weekend. Starfish automobile executive Daniel Corban, who is on his honeymoon with his wife of two weeks, Elizabeth Corban, at a lavish secluded lake-front house in the quaint summer resort community of Skuylkill, is frustrated. First, Elizabeth has not been seen in three days, and second, Skuylkill police inspector Murray Levine, who has a down home attitude matching the slow pace of the town, doesn't seem to be doing much about trying to find her despite Daniel's insistence that he do so. Levine does not see it as a police case since by Daniel's own admission she left on her own volition after the two of them had an argument. Levine has at least vowed that members of his detachment will look out for her and her missing vehicle. Daniel's frustration increases when a woman who claims to be Elizabeth, but is not, returns in what looks to be Elizabeth's car. He is unable to convince anyone, including Levine, that she isn't Elizabeth. And anyone in ... Written by Huggo

Excellent Movie
19 July 2010 | by Lavarock7See all my reviews

I was channel surfing one day and found this movie minutes after the opening credits. I thought it was a Quincy episode and started watching. I soon realized it was a move.

As the movie progressed I said "ah ha!" that I knew who did what. Minutes later I was proved wrong but THEN thought that I knew what was up. Again I was proved wrong. Soon I realized that I was being led down the primrose path. This back and forth happened throughout the movie.

By the end of the movie I realized how well it had been crafted. I felt is was a good choice of cast members too.

I highly recommend this movie if you can find it!
