Two women complain about their husbands, leading to a murder and blackmail

This movie was so bad it was laughable. I couldn't resist watching it though. The plot is standard, the acting quite horrible (supporting cast such as the nutty neighbor and the lawyer friend were better actors). Kind of amusing if you have some time to waste and like seeing the conclusion to a dramatic plot.

The headliner who plays "Kathy" was just fascinating because I couldn't decide if her deadpan, flat affect was the result of bad surgery or simply bad acting (I decided it was both). This leaves the script to comment on, which was pretty awful. Pat remarks, idiotic decisions, and reckless stupidity on the part of every character in the movie. Maybe this is what was so riveting; I don't know. I just watched it to see how bad it could be. (Actually the dialog doesn't even qualify to be called "cliche'" - but it's almost completely inane.)

All in all, very bad, cheaply made movie. The sets, the same scenes (a house, a building) were shown over and over with no artistry or actual tie-in to the action; more like props that were randomly dropped into the action in a bad play. A chase scene could have been shot by any juvenile in a warehouse or an old school: poorly shot, cheap props, minimal action.... and I still wanted to see the ending. Go figure.

A Very Bad Remake

I watched this movie, because it's Friday night and it's Pick-A-Flick night on Lifetime Movie Channel. But 15 minutes into the movie, it was obvious that this was a remake of "Strangers on a Train." Having watched "Accidental Meeting" a few days ago - not a bad movie - I wasn't really in the mood to watch the same plot again, but I gave a try.

What a waste of time!

First, the writing was bad. The dialogue was inane, and unlike "Accidental Meeting," it didn't even make much sense. The writers didn't seem to know how they wanted to end this thing, and seemed to lose their own train of thought. Second, the acting was pretty bad. The delivery was flat and strained - but that's excusable, given the lines they had to deliver!

I usually enjoy Lifetime movies, except for the almost obligatory bedroom scenes, and I usually rate movies higher than the average, but I cannot recommend this at all, and a 3 is overly generous!
