Not one of the Best
What could have been a pretty good stalker movie wound up a cheesy chick-flick.
Judith Light, sporting some of the ugliest hair-dos (can't call them "styles") ever, plays a middle-aged woman with way too much money and just about zero sense.
Light's character, a married woman named Janice Mitchell, is almost impossible to sympathize with. Here's a woman whose husband makes megabucks, but spends a lot of time on the road. Janice whines to her shrink about how empty her life is. Boo Hoo.
She meets a Younger Man and has a brief affair. Turns out the guy is a nut job, and that's the plot. Hubby comes home, suddenly starts paying attention to her and she tells the youngster to take a hike. Of course, he won't and starts stalking her.
To further showcase her stupidity, she lies to the cops about knowing the guy after he tries to rape her.
All in all, a somewhat painful way to spend two hours.
