Movie Reviews

Somewhat schmaltzy and over-acted...
C. Rocklein | 10/21/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"...but at least it'll hold your attention. In quality of acting and tone of movie production, it's a notch above those true crime TV shows that have actors reproducing the events that "went down". This movie also offers lots of viewpoints via this method with alternative scenarios and flashback scenes that try to recreate what happened and what could have happened along side the story which begins with his wife finding him dead and later being taken to trial.

The story is better than the production quality and acting perhaps. It feels like a TV movie, with all the right scandalous ingredients - sex, lies and sin - it held my attention in the way an article from the Enquirer or some gossip mag would do. The movie moves along and won't put you to sleep. No Oscars here or anything. Finally the question of whether or not she did it are left unresolved in the face of where they are today and we're left to chew on trial scenes and potential scenarios that reporters imagine as they wait for the verdict."
