Goofs

When Nancy is on the couch with Tony and Robert calls her from Hong Kong, the flip phone she is on snaps shut as she answers it. She then opens it fully and begins her conversation with her husband. If a flip phone is opened part of the way and then closes, even if it is not opened fully, the call is disconnected. See more »

Good individual Scenes
16 November 2008 | by dnewwmannSee all my reviews

Some very good individual scenes here, and an excellent performance from John Stamos (not so with Robin...who is just terribly miscast in this one)....however the whole is not as good as it's individual parts. Based on a true story, I had seen several documentaries about this really amazing case (Two brothers on separate Continent's are both murdered). Those documentaries are extremely fulfilling. This TV drama only touches on the highlights of the tragedies. Unfortunately, the wealth of material that was available to the writer wasn't used properly. Yes, as I've said, some VERY good, and well researched scenes. However, this TV movie basically only has acted sections of what really happened. Unfortunately, if you don't know enough about the case itself....this film won't make too much sense. But what is there is good....it's just not enough. Investigate the case before you see the film, and I'm sure you will agree.
