Storyline

Derien McCall, a nightmare-plagued ex-cop turned private investigator, takes an odd assignment from Anthea, the wife of a wealthy real-estate magnate, Michael Ferrow-Smith: to flirt with him and see if he expresses interest. Her emotions quickly take over and the flirting becomes more than that. Derien conducts an affair with Michael and breaks off the client relationship with Anthea, but a desperate call from Anthea brings Derien to Michael's house late one night. What's going on, Derien wonders, has she been set up? If so, by whom? Can she solve the crime, avoid imprisonment, and rid herself of the demons of her past? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Don't Be Tempted...
2 November 2002 | by dromascaSee all my reviews

Don't be tempted to see this movie, unless you really have nothing better to do. The series of NYC yuppie mysteries produced much better films than this very boring and un-interesting production. The story of an attractive ex-police woman, now a PI, hired to follow a married man and getting involved with the subject of her inquiry is too expected to catch the attention. The resulting triangle cannot create the much needed sexual tension, and what should have been a series of surprises can be predicted many film minutes in advance. Conventional acting and a foggy ending do not add too much.

5/10 on my personal scale.
