Mary Walsh delivers boyfriend Kevin to a hospital for routine outpatient surgery. But when Mary returns to take him home, he's mysteriously vanished. An administrator can find no record of him, and a police search turns up nothing. Increasingly frantic, Mary's taken to staff psychiatrist Dr. Bensley, who pronounces her unstable. Now she must not only find her missing boyfriend, but prove her own sanity as well. When a stranger informs her he knows Kevin's whereabouts and demands a $10 million ransom, she has one hour to comply... and her boyfriend's life hangs in the balance. Forced to embezzle the money from the bank where she works, Mary soon discovers the shocking truth behind the disappearance. Now time is running out and she must take matters into her own hands to save herself. Written by George

User Reviews

Nice drama, Brittany was good, not great.
25 April 2010 | by argylefarmSee all my reviews

I enjoyed the movie, although the plot took some time to settle in and drug out in the beginning. But once you realized what was happening, the movie was a little better going. Scale of 1-10 a 4. I really enjoyed seeing Brittany in this film, but think some of the casting was off. Some of the actors didn't fit the rolls and came off kinda dumb. Their acting ability was poor and it brought down some of the scenes. Maybe the director's fault? My only complaint was Brittany's make up and hair. Then to find in the end credits her husband, Simon took credit for it. POOR choice again by the casting personnel. In some scenes she looked clownish. She already has big lips (botox?), but the lipstick applied was over extended and she looked like the Joker from Batman. Make up on her eyebrows and her hair needed the roots done, and a good shampoo would have helped. Her make up/character didn't warrant this effect, and she should have looked better kept. Some scenes she has tremendous bags under her eyes, and her hair sticks out like hair spray was dumped on her. The movie is worth watching because Brittany is in it, otherwise it's just so so.
