Not good at all.....
19 October 2001 | by wishkah7See all my reviews

Yet, another Made-for-TV movie about a victimized woman that Lifetime tries to cram down our throats. In this one a woman gets raped on the job by an unknown assailant then her family pities her and she gets pregnant and doesn't know who the father is. Then a guy comes and helps her through only to find out later that her boyfriend was her unknown attacker. And get this, the boyfriend even redeems himself so he could be a father to his kid. Talk about obligation!

This type of plot for a movie is something you would normally see on Maury Povich or Jerry Springer! Richard Grieco and Cynthia Gibb are such talented people. Why did they have to participate in a pitiful movie like this? Were they promised a huge amount of money? In retrospect, Sin and Redemption is just another victimized woman movie that's shown on Lifetime, otherwise known as the All-Abuse, Victim, Anguish, and Whodunnit Channel that is a must-miss. Unless of course there's some people out there who like these kind of movies and that's okay with me. I give Sin and Redemption one star.
