Another Dumb TVM
21 August 2002 | by Theo RobertsonSee all my reviews

Imagine you stole someone`s identity and the in laws of that person invited you stay with them , how long would you be able to keep up the pretense ? Probably indefinitely if the in laws are as stupid as the ones here . You`d think they`d ask some searching questions to their daughter in law about their son wouldn`t you ? But that never happens . And seeing as so much water has passed underneath the bridge in the first place it never become clear why they wanted to meet their son`s wife in the first place . It`s not only the father and daughter in law who are dumb it seems everyone in this American state is too . Shrinks seem to keep sharpened scissors lying about in their office when meeting mentally ill patients and doctors are unable to tell the difference between people who have been murdered and those who have died by suicide and natural causes. There`s far too much suspension of disbelief in this TVM . Mind you this premise might have been quite good as a comedy instead of an unthrilling TVM . Hopefully we`ll see this remade with Cameron Diaz and Matt Dillon in the near future
