Fun for this kind of movie
15 January 2018 | by phd_travelSee all my reviews

This is one of those entertaining Lifetime thrillers that is fine if you don't expect too much. It's quite engrossing and fast moving and doesn't take itself too seriously. An errant daughter comes home to New Orleans after her father dies shortly after marrying his secretary. She gets involved with her stepmother's son. But her brother is suspicious.

The trashiness of some of the characters is funny. Kristy Swanson is always a welcome presence and she does a good job as the Bad Stepmother. She looks slimmer than she has for some time. Her stepdaughter is played by Sofia Vassilieva. Her character is so frustrating that it's laughable.

Worth one watch.
