Entertaining fare with Heather Locklear

"I thought the movie was a fine effort - Heather Locklear and Johnathon Schaech do well in their roles, and the plot follows the Nora Roberts formula for the most part, even if not exactly in all the details of the book (what movie does?). Yes, Locklear is a bit older than her lead (in reality we're only talking 8 years). In today's world that's hardly the point, but a few of the reviewers seem to be preoccupied with that rather than the merits of the movie & want to count wrinkles (geez, go play in your room if you've nothing else to do). Locklear, like a number of other mid-aged actresses (Jennifer Aniston, Michelle Pfeiffer, Sharon Stone, Halley Berry anyone?) looks good. It's refreshing that not all actresses have to be 20-somethings for these roles, and frankly, it's about time. We aren't talking Oscar material here, but these kind of movies never are - they're supposed to be lighter fare, like a beach novel, with a bit of suspense, a twist of mystery & romance thrown in, & plausible ending. That's precisely what you've got here. It's entertaining and enjoyable."
Horrible, horrible movie

"I was so disappointed in the movie. The book is one of my favorites, and while I'm not naive enough to think that you can pack a novel into 90 minutes of film, I was really hopeful they would do a better job than this. Heather Locklear was awful as Reece; too old, too calm, too unemotional. The woman cast as Joanie did an okay job, but the character was changed so much she was almost unrecognizable. And while I know some things must change when a story is adapted for t.v., things that I felt were integral to the characters were changed for no reason I could see (Reece being the one who x'd out the faces in the photo, the fight between Joanie and Reece in the kitchen). Jonathan Schaech did well with what he had to work with, but the romantic scenes between he and Locklear came across, in my opinion, as agressive and somewhat creepy on his part. I felt like if I hadn't read the book the movie would have been very confusing, but since I did the read the book, it was very disappointing. And when did Reece get electro-shock therapy?? I'm going to go read the book now, and hope it scrubs this movie from my mind."
