A wealthy high powered woman suffers a horrible tragedy after which she descends into substance abuse,turning her back on her family. She later discovers that someone close to her may be behind her subsequent abduction and kidnapping.
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
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!
