Storyline

Brooks Caldwell, (Cary Elwes) an erudite and handsome lawyer, seems to have it all: wealth, social status and a red hot career. His success is, in reality, a product of his marriage to his beautiful, socialite wife, Amanda, (Terri Polo) a wealthy timber heiress. Unlike most, who would remain content to enjoy a life of luxury and privilege, Brooks continues to risk everything by having extramarital affairs. Brooks' philandering, in addition to humiliating Amanda, has driven her to the point of a mental breakdown. Having been pushed over the edge, Amanda orchestrates a just and elaborate plan to bring her husband down. When Brooks leaves for a weekend romp with his latest squeeze, (Agnes Bruckner) his life quickly descends into a bizarre, nightmarish, downward spiral. Written by Anonymous

A bit of a mess!
7 May 2016 | by zif ofozSee all my reviews

Unfunny. Goofy. Dawdling. Gewgaw acting. No, I didn't like this dumb flick.

The plot rambles along from one implausible situation to another. Is it all a dream, yes, a nightmare! Is it all real, yes, bad luck for us all. Then the ending of the movie. It is suppose to be conclusive but it is just more of the same.

Not a comedy, not a drama, not a fantasy, not anything. Far from science fiction! The storyline read as great fun. Rich boy gone bad and a woman's revenge. A towns revenge. Everybody is in on the game! I'm sure the movie 'extras' got a good lunch for their efforts during the filming.

If you are a binge drinker and want to find a way to start or stop drinking; watch this flick!
