| Ann Jillian is good...Not all women are victims....
even though there are many films like this, and it somehow seems "this could happen to anyone".

There is psychology involved, persecution, masochism. A not insignificant fact is that this was based on a true story, and the mother was involved with an abuser in this case.

Richard Grieco is believable, although a bit over the top. He makes a great chicken salad though!.

Ultimately, if you take this as a cautionary tale, it works. It is not a masterpiece, but may be instructive for young girls early teens, who think a guy seems "cool" only to learn the true facts. Violence isn't cool. Alcoholism and jail isn't cool. Not a bad Lifetime addition.
