Storyline

Beautiful, successful Jessica Slate is used to getting what she wants whether she has to use her brains, charm, or body to do it. So when Jessica is hired by Mickelson Pharmaceuticals to fast-track a drug that will keep the company afloat, she's confident she can convince the FDA to make it happen. What she doesn't know, however, is that one of the researchers, Don, has discovered that the drug is killing people. When Don threatens to go public with the information and block the drug's approval, Jessica has him murdered. All goes as planned and Jessica is able to cover up the crime, or at least she thinks she has...until Don's pre-med school daughter, Renee, launches her own investigation into her father's death. Will she be able to discover the truth before it's too late? Written by Anonymous

Pay attention close the 1st time and it will save you the trouble of watching again!
11 February 2017 | by marsmitchell79See all my reviews

It's one of those movies that you watch the 1st time and you'll give it an 8, because your standards are not really high. The time that I looked more closely at the minor details, I give it a 4! Plenty of errors in the writing of this one. A prostitute claims she could not make out what the criminal looks like in the night, but somehow she's able to tell what's on his license plates from a distance. Then, her friend just so happens to be an IT tech wannabe, which she needs to find out who murdered her dad! The executress allows her mother to blackmail her over a murder that happened when she wad a kid! Then, she just so happened to know when her mom would be in the tub, despite being out of her house for 6 years or more! The director did not care about 20-something lady's acting either. When her dad died, she felt like she let him down and she did not cry! A husband dies out of the blue and he looks like he's been cut in the face.

The stock option part does make sense(probably the only major part that does make sense), because the 2 execs really did not care about the company--only about getting paid. A problematic miracle drug would swamp a company with lawsuits, but they didn't care. The reason why it makes sense is because the 2 execs got paid and left-- regardless of what happens to the company.
