Good Premise. One Extremely Bad TVM
26 November 2002 | by Theo RobertsonSee all my reviews

Another TVM dealing with murder ! Hey perhaps if someone in America gets to grips with crime the murder rate will fall we won`t have to put up with crap small screen movies like this . Why`s it so crap ? Okay here goes...

The idea is relatively good ( Though I`m somewhat dubious as to how true this " Based on a true story is " ) What`s happened is a woman has been murdered and the husband and her lover both blame one another for it , so who`s lying who`s telling the truth ? The problem is it`s so badly written , directed and acted that you`ll find yourself asking why anyone involved in this poor production escaped prosecution for crimes against TV viewers . Scriptwriter Philip Rosenberg wastes his time with character flashbacks instead of filling in the numerous plot holes which will have you asking " Wait a darn minute, how`d the prosecution come to that conclusion ? " Mind you the defence attornay is played by an actor called Alex Courtney who I`ve never heard of who gives one of the most bizarre performances I`ve ever seen. Imagine Tommy Lee Jones pretending he`s a camp drag queen and you`ve got the idea . No wonder the wooden D.A seems to get so many lucky breaks . And all this is directed in a completely static way by Waris Hussein whose major claim to fame is that he directed the very first DOCTOR WHO story . The camera work there was also very static but that was way back in 1963 and Hussein managed to get good performances out of the cast on his WHO debut so what went wrong here ?

Perhaps the worst criticism I can give MURDER BETWEEN FRIENDS is the fact that later on the same day I also watched A BEAUTIFUL MIND and THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RINGS and could still recall how bad this film was
