bad cliché Lifetime movie
13 October 2015 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Brooke Harris (Elisabeth Röhm) wakes up from a coma with amnesia. She had a boating accident and bruises from before the incident. A man claiming to be her boyfriend (Michael Shanks) takes her home. They encounter Melissa (Serinda Swan) who claims to be her best friend. Police detectives Wagner and Hanson is investigating. Brooke has flashes of violent memories.

Peolpe please! Lay off poor Brooke. She may be naive and probably forgotten all the other Lifetime movies. But she has brain damage. The other characters don't have that excuse. The cops are unbelievably dumb in their investigation. I don't think a real doctor would let anybody claiming to be a boyfriend to take her patient. A lot of this could be solved by making him her real husband. The legal restrictions would excuse the doctor and the cops. In the end, he's not related to her and yet they tip toe around her abused state. Other things also annoyed me. The cops are both wearing trenchcoats like it's some kind of cheesy uniform. The "twist" is coming from a mile away which eliminates any suspense from the movie. This is a bad version of countless other Lifetime movies.
