Storyline

Tanya Sullivan (alias Sexykitten), mother of teenager Molly, with a crummy cosmetics sales job in Pittsburgh, meets over Internet a great gay, casino employee Joe Donnely (alias Jerseydude), an ex cop -made to resign after testifying truthfully against the PD- and divorced tender father of teenage son Teddy, who chose to live with him but preferred Rhode Island where his mother still lives. After months of hot mail, Tanya flies a first time to Atlantic City and they start to have hot sex. Once she's pregnant, she tells Joe she was abused by her wife-beating father, and is again by her husband Mark, a gangster. He realizes paternity is uncertain, but stands by her, and after threats and insults from Mark flies to Pittsburgh, with his gun; from then on everything goes horribly wrong...

Goofs

When Joe is meeting Tanya for the second time at the airport, he is seen carrying a bouquet of flowers for her. He then goes to the men's room, and the flowers are never seen again. This is not a goof because right before he enters the restroom, he walks by a trash can and the camera focuses on the trash can indicating that's where he put the flowers. See more »

Fatal mistake
5 June 2010 | by guil12See all my reviews

First of all this age old story of boy meets girl, boys falls in love with girl, girl tricks boy into dirty deeds, girl dumps boy, is done to death (no pun intended). Add to this trite, overdone and often boring movie for TV, the lack of talents from Eric Roberts and Anne Heche. Roberts looks haggard and shriveled. His acting matches his looks. I never considered this guy an actor. Just the brother of Julia making it on her name. In this it shows his ability to stretch his emotions from 1- 2. In It's My Party, he costarred with Gregory Harrison. Harrison and a roster of guest stars made the movie a hit. Roberts was not the best in the film. And in this his co-star Heche (also known as Ellen's ex) was just as bad. Not a looker, it was embarrassing to see her playing a sexy broad with a flat body, skinny legs and no bosom.

This movie is worse than a B picture and should be labeled one of the worst ever!
