Storyline

History exam questions are stolen from Cornwall University's history professor's home by Falcons football players, who nearly escape campus police. Campus paper reporter Mary keeps pushing the case. Soon after, her friend Holly Sherman gets drunk and claims to be raped at that party by star player Clay Roberts. But then retracts the accusation realizing she probably gave the wrong signals. Mary pushes even harder, even after the college finds no proof, no case, ignoring Clay's denial and turning blindly on the whole team, even the supporters. So it gets personal on both sides.

slow paced thriller
15 March 2000 | by punk_1975See all my reviews

A very slow paced but aggressive investigation by a campus journalist played by Melissa Joan Hart leads to the apprehension of an identified rapist who happened to be one of the outstanding football player of their campus. For Mary, there's no such thing as backing out for what she have started as she was really motivated to pursue the justice that her friend "Molly" deserves even if its the reputation of the whole campus administration which is at stake. As for the very poor intensity mood of playing the role of Mary, so is the way the movie evolves into a lousy concept of a thriller film w/c doesn't even earned a climax. The only accelerating factor was that it was topped by a very energetic, strong appealing "Melissa Joan Hart" who for the very first place should not supposed accepted the role because she have her self credited with great sitcom's such as her adoring "Clarissa" and "Sabrina" and what would be a possible feedback was that this film would be a stumbling block to her flourishing career. For what I know...she's the only cream of this CRAP.
