I only watched this for Yannick Bisson
24 May 2015 | by juneebuggySee all my reviews

Well this was pretty bad; cheesy, stilled dialogue, overdone background music, bad decisions and just all-round kinda dull.

Truthfully I only turned this on because I saw Yannick Bisson's name attached and well...Murdock Mysteries. He plays a secondary character here, the nice guy (as per) DA husband of the main character. In the opening scenes we learn his wife is pregnant and then discovers she was adopted. 'Lori' spends about 2 minutes searching for her birth mother and once reunited begins to uncover a mystery surrounding why her mom gave her up for adoption, why her father is in jail for murder and who killed her grandfather.

The story itself was okay I guess, there is some mystery here especially in the beginning as you also follow some bearded dude in jail. The birth mother was a weird character; weak frightened, she just seemed crazy, as was everyone else in the small town Lori travels to.

I will say that the bad guy gave me some (unintentional) laughs. Completely over-the-top and clichéd as he covers his tracks and threatens people. For the most part this was just a waste of time. 5/17/15
