Dodgy car salesman Bill Rander runs a racket with the help of his devoted orphaned nephew Jeremy. The boy is supposed to seduce his new history teacher Carrie Ryans, whose ex Dean contests custody over their daughter Lacey, so Bill can make compromising pictures to blackmail her. But after she encourages his academic talent, even helps to apply for a scholarship, Jeremy gets real feelings for her and calls the deal off, just after Bill murdered her wealthy dad, eager for the inheritance.

Did You Know?


Evan: Mr. Collins makes the rules, and he's saying sixty-forty. You can pay us the extra ten percent later.
Bill Rander: There's no profit in it, Evan.
Evan: You wanna whine to Mr. Collins? Go ahead, call him. I'm just picking up the cash.
Bill Rander: But this is ridiculous!

Bill Rander: Collins isn't the only guy with cars, you know.

Absolutely awful
19 September 2008 | by refdanSee all my reviews

I was immensely disappointed at this halfhearted effort to produce a thriller/crime story. I was expecting some well developed characters who have more than one dimension and an interesting plot.

What I watched was nothing like that. Instead, the characters are like paper cutouts with no depth. The main character is just too good to be real. Always perfectly coiffed, even after getting out of bed. Her husband is a no-good philanderer with a failed business. Her father is caricature from the Andy Griffith Show.

The basic plot has some interesting potential, but the film makers just didn't have enough guts to find it.

I just don't recommend this to anyone who wants to be entertained with a creative and thought provoking film.
