Ok to watch...but on video only
21 July 2000 | by sutcalSee all my reviews

This movie has some interesting twists, but ultimately is predicatble as to the outcome. It has all the hallmarks of a Mary Higgins Clark mystery novel in the the heroine in this movie solves the case and bags the baddie. There is also the obligatory "cop love interest" who seems to be likeable but totally inept as a detective...This sounds too familiar with many movies I have seen.

It's a tv movie, with no major stars...so you can't expect a big budget thriller...It was too predicatble for my liking but watchable nonetheless.

Give it a go and form your own view.
