The story of the Novack murders was unknown to me until I saw this movie. What they did was to turn this awful tragedy to a bad comedy pretty close to "War of the Roses" but in contrast to "Beautiful and twisted" that one was actually funny. I think almost everything went wrong in this production including bad acting, bad manuscript, confusing time jumps, confusing personality changes, lack of action, lack of drama, lack of humor and lack of energy. The movie begins in a humorous mode so I thought it was a dark comedy, but that's an absurd thought considering the tragic evens the plot is based on. I haven't seen Rob Lowe in too many movies but I didn't know he was that bad actor. Also, in real life Narcy's daughter May has two sons. They were not mentioned at all in the movie. Instead May was portrayed as a good little fairy with no agenda at all in life than serving her stepfather and his business as well as possible. How someone can produce a so unprofessional piece of work 2015 is beyond comprehension.
