partly predictable, derivative, but somehow entertaining
18 March 2005 | by blanche-2See all my reviews

This has Lifetime stamped all over it, which is never really a great thing but doesn't have to be a bad thing.

The stars, although IMDb doesn't list them, are Jonathan Higgins, Dina Meyer, and Amy Sloan. The Dina character sues the Higgins character for sexual harassment, and there the fun begins.

If you're familiar with the genre, most of this movie can be figured out in the first reel. It's nonetheless entertaining in its derivative way. Dina Meyer does a fine job and is a beautiful woman, and Jonathan Higgins is convincing as a nervous wreck. The end has a neat twist to it.

It's a little slow-moving and, as stated, you can see most of it coming a mile away, but Meyer definitely elevates it.
