Nightmare divorce scenario
2 October 2001 | by andertonmarkSee all my reviews

The film is slightly above average.

Plenty of suspense, a well played bad guy, and a family being terrorised by his obsession.

The worst thing is seeing the Fonz being totally uncool. Unless you derive pleasure from the Happy Days icon acting a complete jerk, you are going to find it all a bit much to take in. Its a bit like when you find out that Santa and the tooth fairy are part of the magic of childhood. Depressing.

It is a TV movie anyway, and you'll only be reading this if it's on your listings this week....

Its worth a look, but not worth much more...
