Highly underrated...
20 March 2012 | by buigerSee all my reviews

I found this movie to be believable, well scripted and entertaining, something that usually happens when films are based on a true story, and this one is. I would like to point out that Virginia Madsen's performance was excellent, she really shines in her role. I disagree with the notion some have advanced that Thomas was boring, I think he played the part exactly as it should be. If anybody, I found Ted McGinley not to be up to par with the others.

All in all a good movie, again goes to prove that nowadays, some movies made for TV can be much better that "real" films with much higher budgets.
