User Reviews

 
Uninteresting and Tedious Mystery

Take anything you like about a Lifetime movie and throw it out the window. Then you have this move. Over complicated, too many characters, and insanely boring.

There is a reason LMN doesn't often produce movies. This is an excellent case for it NEVER to happen again. Yikes.
