Realistic and Humorous
9 July 2005 | by jdwaysideSee all my reviews

Caught this when it was rerun whilst I was working on a Sunday afternoon. The summary sounded mildly intriguing so I let it run.

I really liked the fact the the characters seemed real. They were just ordinary working women with a (somewhat) ordinary job, who succumbed to a temptation that I'm sure any of us in a similar situation would at least feel if not give into ourselves. And who's to say that you or I wouldn't, under those circumstances? No attempt was made to "glam" up the principals, either, which I appreciated.

This film's greatest strength is that the story was allowed to *tell itself* with realism and a bit of humour. Not exactly a classic, but still it's a mighty good yarn, done in a competent and believable manner.

Fans of The Bill might recognise Melanie Hill (Liz) - she played the looney Marie, who met copper Jim Carver whilst he was counseling her over the murder of her daughter and subsequently was (briefly) married to him.
