Inferior Feature Should have been on Lifetime
31 January 2019 | by arfdawg-1See all my reviews

This is a really really bad movie.

Starts off with this chick named Libby staring into space. Cut to 4 years later. She's STILL staring into space.

That basically describes this movie. You'll be staring into space from boredom.

Exceedingly poorly written and directed. It's truly made like a Lifetime movie -- it's THAT cheesy.

There's no tension, no drama, no characters to care about. Jamie Lee Curtis seems way out of her element and reminds me of the kinds of flicks Stallone is in now where he just walks thru an delivers his lines. It's HORRIBLE.
