sultry Scottsdale Seymour
15 March 2003 | by See all my reviews

Executive produced by Jane Seymour and director James Keach, Seymour is Teresa Winters from Georgia who has come to Scottsdale, Arizona searching for her daughter Jennifer (Kristina Betts). Waiting to hear from her ex-husband Larry (Ray Wise), Teresa meets Greg Foster (Stephen Meadows) at their shared motel and they begin an affair. However Greg has another agenda.

Seymour uses a southern American accent, which raises her pitch when she yells, making her sound more ferocious in one scene that she normally appears. She is styled with tight clothes and baring flesh, sweating, and trying a sultry eyes half closed look, but sensuality only works when the person doesn't make it so contrived. Seymour is also seen dancing, has sex in a public swimming pool, and gets one camp line `You've reached the line. Don't cross it'.

The teleplay by Duane Poole has some interest when Teresa has ambiguity as to whether she is a local killer and we think Greg is being manipulated by a femme fatale, but as soon as Teresa discovers something in Greg's room, the narrative is reduced to a woman in peril from a `sociopath'.

Keach-lookalike Meadows gives the more interesting performance since his change of character wipes out our memory of the guiless person we had known, Don Ameche is funny as the motel manager, but poor Wise gets the worse lines and fails to rise above them.
