"SEDUCED is a mediocre made-for-TVer in which not a single character is worthy of sympathy.
Here, a rich businessman is killed during an apparent botched home invasion. Young D.A. Mike Riordan (Harrison) doesn't know not to mess around with former gal pal Vicki (Shepherd), who's now the geezer's third wife and widow. The beneficiaries, including buxom stepdaughter (Barbeau), greedily grapple for loot as they accuse Vicki and Mike of murder.
The plot is predictable, but not in a Hitchcockian "let the audience in on it" kind of way. Long before we reach this tedious story's denouement the killer's identity is a given, and when the baddie holds a pistol to our unlikeable hero's gut, one hopes that the trigger gets pulled.
It's THAT bad. Save your time and money!
