Movie Reviews

If it's Tuesday Knight, this must be "Cover Story".
Brett Johnson | 02/18/2005
(2 out of 5 stars)

""Cover Story" is actually a mildly entertaining film. I like the fact that the movie never turns out to go in the direction that you are expecting. That gives it a slight feeling of freshness, although it cannot overcome the horrendous performance by its lead actor.

Matt, played by William Wallace, moves into a new place and flips through some of the mail intended for the lady who used to live there. He immediately becomes obsessed and starts asking anybody and everybody about her. It turns out that she was quite the trouble-maker and made her share of enemies. A couple of other developments include a mysterious neighbor who falls in love with Matt and a rapper who occasionally appears to show off his skills. All of this is interspersed with Matt having sessions with his therapist.

Leland Orser is delightfully over the top as a very homosexual drug dealer and Christopher McDonald has a short scene playing a bizarre psychic. I have no qualms stating right here that I probably would have enjoyed this film much more were it not for William Wallace. It is interesting to see him listed as a producer of this film. That could explain a lot. Simply put, this guy CANNOT act! He is so unappealing and wooden and such an unabashed jerk in this film that it is virtually impossible to like him.

A final note: the DVD case for this film states that Matt is a journalist who is "covering the story of his life." What?!? He is not a journalist and I have no idea where some of these people who do DVD packaging get their information from. 3/10"
