no tension since Carrie never truly in danger
13 July 2015 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Couple Carrie (Ashley Jones) and Dean Ryans are having problems. Carrie is a high school teacher who takes an interest in orphaned student Jeremy Rander (Erik Knudsen). She doesn't know that it's a setup. Jeremy's uncle Bill (Chris Mulkey) is in debt to some bad people for his failing used car lot. They know that she has a wealthy father. After he kills her father, Bill blackmails Carrie for $500k.

It's obvious that Jeremy is helping setting her up and it doesn't even occur to Carrie. It's really stupid. She is too naive. The pictures are all her and Jeremy. Unless somebody is following her 24/7, it's obvious that he's part of the plan. She really should contact the police right away especially since there are no sex pictures. They could set up a payoff and arrest the culprit like David Letterman. The movie has no danger because there is a wide open road for her to drive through.
