| interesting real life story
Vegas stripper Sandy Murphy (Mena Suvari) rejects an offer from Ted Binion (Matthew Modine) claiming not to be a hooker. This only riles him up. Three years later, she comes home to find him dead. He is Vegas royalty and a drug addict. He was stripped of his license seven months before for his drug use and ties to a mob figure. The police investigates as Ted's sister Becky Binion (Marcia Gay Harden) battles Sandy and her boyfriend Rick Tabish (Johnathon Schaech). Rick is arrested for digging up Ted's stash of silver in the desert.

It's an interesting real life story. It seems to be going for a comedic take which isn't that funny. The story would work better as a murder mystery but Sandy is never portrayed as possibly being guilty. That takes all the tension away from the story and the trial. It's a Lifetime TV movie that needs to be more cinematic and dramatic.
