The film begins when Julia Banks is being questioned by a detective in the murder of her psychotic ex-boyfriend, Michael. Julia claims that she has been set up and that she has nothing to do with the murder, despite social media conversations clearly showing Julia lusting after him. The scene then cuts to six months earlier, with Julia getting a send-off from her boss and friend, Ali, from her job as chief online editor for a storytelling website. Julia is now going to work remotely from the mansion she will be sharing with her new loving fiance, David Connover, and her soon-to-be stepdaughter, Lily. Arriving at David's, she is greeted by David's ex-wife, Tessa, who is still not coping with the end of her marriage two years earlier..
During the filming of some intense scenes between Rosario Dawson and Katherine Heigl, stands of Heigl's straight bleached blonde hair would stand up, at which point they would cut, and someone from the hair department would need to flatten it for the scene. See more »
During the party when Julia and David are going to have sex, David slips off Julia's underwear and she is wearing one heel. During sex she is wearing both her heels. After sex she bends over to put her shoes back on. See more »
Obvious melodrama about a woman being harassed by her fiance's sociopathic ex-wife, and her own violent ex- boyfriend. Sleazy, depressing, and is pointlessly told through flashback (from six hyperbolic months earlier) for three quarters of its lazy story, before jumping ahead another six hyperbolic months for the ending.
Heigl is chilling in this, but everyone and everything else is laughable.
It was also a bit unclear when this story is taking place, as characters still have landline phones (along with cell phones) and still have the newspaper delivered to their front door.
The final " Oh, here we go again " end scene, with the grandmother, made me shout, " Oh, f*** off! " at the screen.
