Nothing To Get Excited About
27 February 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

Plain-and simple: this is a made-for-TV ripoff of the film, "Single White Female."

It has a few things going for it that SWF didn't have, but overall but is a cheesy chick flick that would only play on something like the Lifetime Network.

What it has going for it are two beautiful women in Heather Locklear and Linda Purl (of the early days of TV's "Matlock"). That, and the fact that the whole family could watch this as there is no profanity or nudity, which you certainly can't say of SWF.

Nonetheless, this "version," if you will, lacks suspense and the element of danger, concentrating more on romance and women is the business world. Yawn.
