Storyline

CEO David Wescott greatly appreciates his trusted office assistant Rachel Parsons's efforts to help out in the Wescott household too when he loses his wife, leaving his child semi-orphaned after an ailing disease. Rachel stops at nothing to make herself seem indispensable in both spheres, aiming for her boss's exclusive attention. She's confident a business trip to New York provides the perfect opportunity for her to propose, but realizing she schemed to intrude his intimacy, he puts her in her place, planting the seed for spiteful revenge at a corporate dinner.

Not that bad
13 November 2008 | by guilfisher-1See all my reviews

Although the leading lady played by Josie Davis was a bit over the wall, she still brought that evil doings expected in these "perfect" films on LMN. Cold steel blue eyes and manner, she traipsed through the film undaunted. You could hardly wait for her demise. I loved it when she didn't get what she wanted. That's how good she was. Evil, evil and more evil. Although I do challenge in what hospital a stranger can walk in at night without a nurse questioning her and then do her evil. I thought monitors were for keeping tabs on patients, yet no one came to the rescue when the lady's monitor went crazy. Oh, well, that's show biz. I also liked Chris Potter from QUEER AS FOLK fame. Natural in his acting and believable with a difficult role. Unlike Perry King who always seems to succumb to his evil ladies. Rachel Hunter brought a likable maturity to the fold. Weak spots were Sophie Gendron, with her Novocaine lips and Deborah Pollitt as the plain Jane weird sister. Both were not actresses but a freak of nature. All in all, thanks to Davis, Potter and Hunter it wasn't that bad.
