Only a few weeks after her husband's mysterious death, Maureen returns from a cruise with handsome Brit Oliver Vance in tow. Her son Scott is mortified. He still can't believe that his father - a world-class athlete - actually drowned. When Maureen and Oliver announce wedding-plans, Scott's world begins to fall apart. Oliver's attractive daughter Kelly shares Scott's distrust of the impending marriage - and proposes a theory of her own: is it possible that Maureen and Oliver have known each other longer than just a few weeks; and if so, could they have possibly killed Scott's father? The two start to investigate - and soon fall in love. But while they are united by a horrible suspicion, the investigation soon reveals some secrets that keep them apart. Scott has to realize that he can truly trust no one - not Oliver, not Maureen and definitely not Kelly. Written by Karsten Kastelan

How unfascinating!
25 August 2007 | by See all my reviews

I really should have checked IMDb before watching this mess. It is a bad movie. Direction and writing is very amateurish. There are shots of the rainbow above the sea. Was that supposed to be symbolic or did the director just put it there because it looked nice? There are several plot holes and the characters are badly written. Adam Garcia takes his shirt off more than he acts. Alice Evans seems to show potential but this half-baked role does nothing to confirm. Stuart Wilson is very bad too. The only one who did act is Jacqueline Bisset. Why is this woman doing terrible movies? 'Fascination' may qualify as soft-core (even though the love-scenes were very unconvincing). It is quite a waste of time and should have been rightfully called 'Unfascination'.
