Driving Miss Trudy
27 January 2016 | by wes-connorsSee all my reviews

Beautiful blonde criminal justice student Danielle Savre (as Trudy O'Donnell) thinks she's getting into a legitimate "NetCar" (as "Uber") after partying at a nightclub. As it turns out, the driver is a fake. He drugs and rapes his victims, after arriving in a black sedan that looks like a legitimate car. Most people just hop in the vehicle and give their address. Understandably traumatized, Ms. Savre has trouble warming up to attractively muscular Jackson Davis (as Donovan), who seems like an ideal catch. She's not interested in slightly chubby Kevin Cox (as Charles), a "NetCar" driver and fellow student. After learning how long it takes to investigate rape cases, Savre decides to take matters into her own hands. She gets a job as a driver for the same company, hoping to stalk, identify and nip the rapist...

Writer-director John Stimpson's "The Wrong Car" contains a valuable lesson: make sure you know your driver is authentic...

It's also an engaging and nicely produced story. Casting is perfect, right down to sleazy motel clerk Rhet Kidd (as Roger) and concerned detective Christina Elmore (as Jackson). There are some problems accepting various plot developments, however. While strained, we're going pardon Savre for putting roommate Francia Raisa (as Gretchen) in deadly danger. It's stupid, but we all do stupid things. The last shot (of alcohol) at the nightclub, before the endeavor, is dumb multiplied. But, the characters leaving the scene of a possible rape to go have coffee - and with a police investigator, no less - is the real deal breaker. No good "Lifetime TV Movie" cop or heroine would do such a thing. If the pretty blonde heroine can skip showering for three days, she can wait a few hours to help a drugged rape victim.
