Well Done!!!
18 June 2010 | by See all my reviews

There should be an awards show for made-for-TV movies. Low paid directors taking a low budget, B-grade actors, and a throwaway script and creating not a work of art but a movie of no value except the two hours of guilty pleasure it bestows upon its viewers. Grant Show is, as always, handsome enough to carry the movie on looks alone. An added treat is that his portrayal of psycho-idiot Dennis Pitt is quite well acted. And the girl playing Sue Ann (I'm kind of at a loss to find something good to say about her performance) is pretty. Her acting does leave one hungry for a decent performance in a female role and, fortunately, Michelle Phillips in a cameo role as Sue Ann's mother and Lynne Thigpen as Dennis's parole officer fulfill this need. All in all, not a bad movie.
