Movie Reviews

Southern romance
E. Biza | 08/13/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Susan Lucci puts out all her southern hospitality in this movie, but is she a murderess? New Orleans police investigate and actor Lee Horsley must be the one to find out if she is really is a sweet southern belle or if should he resist her charms. Plot has a nice twist and keeps your interest if you like this genre."
Horrible adaptation of a great Sandra Brown novel
Tracy Vest | Northern California | 09/10/2008
(2 out of 5 stars)

"A controversial televangelist turns up dead and the police suspect that lingerie catalog proprietor Claire Laurent (Susan Lucci) might have done the deed since the televangelist targeted her sinful merchandise. Investigating detective Robert Cassidy (Lee Horsley) is not happy since he's falling for the alluring woman who just might be a murderer. Claire is without an alibi, but there are a host of others out there with motive to kill not so squeaky clean preacher. But as Robert uncovers yet another lie that Claire has told him, can he trust that she is innocent?

Bearing little resemblance to the riveting novel penned by Sandra Brown, this made for TV screen adaptation is simply horrific. Marred by extremely bad acting (hello, there is a reason Lucci waited so long for an Emmy then got one out of consolation), horrible casting of too old actors (Lucci is about 50; Claire is about 30 in the novel), atrocious dialogue, and poor plot changes that do nothing for the story (was it really necessary to change Robert into a detective - he was the straight laced DA), it never really emerges above melodramtic mediocrity. Which is a shame because the novel is actually fantastic.

I often wonder why Hollywood doesn't look to some of the novels and adapt them for the screen. Now I know why. They simply don't know how to.
