"If you can follow my title than you want this DVD!!!!! RDA is excellent. The good cop/bad cop cliche works VERY well in this story. RDA plays Jack Rourke, a cop who was arrested years ago under false charges, was cleared but has never been able to shake the fact that he never gets promoted. He can't hold a relationship with anyone. Then he meets a murder witness with a HUGE story behind her also. He spends the vast majority of the film deciding whether he will actually break the law and system that have been unfair to him or keep on the right side. The movie is great and would have to be one of Richard's best works."

"This movie was well done for what it was. Unfortunately, the scriptwriter (my relative) had written a much darker, tighter and meaner script. The script was supposed to be filmed by a company we will refer to as "X". Unfortunately "X" tanked and the flick, which was supposed to be a big-screen production, was passed on to the CBS network. And that's when the changes were made...Lynn's character was meaner, the deafness thing was better integrated, Jack was unredeemable and the ending was...well, very unhappy. But you can't cast Richard Dean Anderson as a bad guy. And, oooh, Justine Bateman is too cute to be a really bad girl. And hey, we're CBS, so you can't HAVE that dark ending...and...well, I hope you get the idea...by the time the executives finished rearranging, cutting and tweaking, this is the product you had left. Can't help wondering what it might have looked like with real Hollywood treatment and less interference from the investors...."
Another flick from the bargin bin.

"Made-for-TV thriller that is more predictable than thrilling. Lynn is an office-clerk with a mysterious past and a tall stranger following her. The last thing she needs is to have an armed robber tell her the location of 2 million dollars in loot before he commits suicide. The other crooks involved are convinced that Lynn knows where the money is while the police know she was listening to loud music on her headphones and couldn't here a word. As luck would have it an embittered cop is designated to be her protector and after a few rolls in the sheets he finds out Lynn's ability to read lips (incredible co-incidence isn't it?). So plots and betrayals spring up on all sides and you never know who you can trust with two million on the loose. You average TV movie. The most redeeming feature about the DVD is that there are no commercials. But I suppose that there are enough "Family Ties" fans out there to keep this one on the shelves for a while"
