Mother Knows Worst, Isn't Lifetime's Best.

Katie Leclerc is always a delight. She delivers a great performance with some extra nuance that a lesser actress might not have added.

The writing on this one let me down. A little too convoluted and too many misdirects to really trust any character POV. Like, who am I rooting for here? Still enjoyable enough due to the strong performances.

Pour it Up! 🔪🔪🔪 (3 Knives) 🍷🍷🍷 (3 glasses of wine required)
