Storyline

Frankie Wells is an evil manipulator. She murders her mother to get her inheritance, but doesn't get caught. Then, two years later, she gets her brother, Danny to murder her boyfriend. Frankie and Danny get arrested because the police are suspicious. He feels really guilty, and confesses everything, but saying that only he killed him, not Frankie. They are both sentenced to 100 years in jail, but Frankie does not return for trial, and runs away. Danny finally realizes that his sister was using him and he tells the police that Frankie masterminded everything. He calls her to ask her to call back, so the police can trace her. She does, and Danny tells her he is angry and betrayed that she used him like any other man. Written by Celine <celine@cheerful.com>

Very Very Good
11 July 2004 | by hilljayneSee all my reviews

This is a very good film. Kristy Swanson is great as a seductress man eating money loving party girl. The reviewer on the first page of these reviews is totally wrong about Ms. Kristy Swanson. She is a much better seductress than say Sarah Michelle Gellar ala Cruel Intentions. Though not quite as spectacular as Nicole Kidman in To Die For. I would give her acting a 9/10. In the makeup department I would give her fake hairpiece she wears in scenes where she is a teenager a 0. It is so obviously fake it almost takes you away from her acting. Jeremy London is good as her loose cannon brother. Best scene: When a motel clerk tells Swanson WE DON'T GET A LOT OF WHORES HERE her reply? WELL YOU GOT YOURSELF ONE NOW.
