| The only deep dark secret is: who financed this really bad little movie???
This movie stars James Brolin as Michael Wakefield, an innkeeper with a deep, dark secret. Melody Anderson is his innocent, beautiful, child-like wife Julianne, who worships the ground he walks on until, one day, a stranger comes to call and Michael disappears and is thought to have died in a car accident. In her efforts to take over the management of the B&B, Julianne starts finding out a lot of nasty little and big things about Michael, who she thought she knew, but now must realize she did not know him at all.

The plot of this movie would be a mediocre not-so-bad one if the acting weren't so trite and generally horrendous. However, some movies are so bad they start slipping into the "kinda fun entertainment" category, simply by virtue of their flaws, which are fun to watch as you cringe and grit your teeth and wonder who in their right mind financed this disaster? This is definitely one of those movies.

So, if you enjoy wincing and can find pleasure in picking apart scene after scene of truly sad and bad acting, this movie is for you. I am sad to admit that I am one of those people. At least where this particular movie is concerned... So, I am understandably torn as to what rating to give it? 6-7 stars for unintentional entertainment, or 1 star for missing the mark intended by a few hundred miles? I have to add that I do like most of the sets in this otherwise truly painful little TV movie. It's a very pretty B&B and the grounds around it, and the colors and decorations are very nice. Ah yes, I am truly conflicted.

Hmmmm, I wonder if it will ever make it to DVD...? :)))
