Storyline

Chicago PD Detective Oscar Ortuso gives Jean Brooks the shocking news that her husband, pediatric oncologist Dr. Sam Brooks, was found dead behind the wheel of a rented vehicle down by the waterfront. The shocking aspect to Jean is not Sam's death in and of itself, but that Sam was declared dead five years ago after he was suspected to have drowned in a boating accident. The only identification on Sam's person which led Oscar to Jean was a medic alert bracelet and a just used one-way plane ticket from Detroit to Chicago. This news is difficult for Jean as she has been unable to move on from what she believed was Sam's death five years ago, something her overbearing mother, Gladys Lambert, has tried to get her to do, and something Jean will have to try and do from the start all over again. As Sam seems to have died from natural causes (a heart attack), Oscar has no choice but to close the case despite he knowing that Jean has questions which are as of yet unanswerable. As such, Oscar ... Written by Huggo

Complete dud
27 January 2006 | by jan518_1See all my reviews

Dreadful film, with some of the worst acting this side of "Dynasty." I've seen Mädchen Amick before, and liked her, but this time she definitely sank to the level of the script. But give her credit--at least she had the good sense to look embarrassed and uncomfortable (constipated even) virtually every time she uttered one of her poorly-written lines. And who is Andrew W. Walker? My best guess is, he's related to the director or casting director, because how else could such an unappealing and untalented actor be cast in this part? The chemistry between the "leads" wasn't just missing--it had actually turned putrid and emitted a foul odor. Save yourself a lot of aggravation and 2 hours of your precious time. Avoid this movie!!!
