***SPOILERS*** The film "Deadly Honeymoon" seems to have been based on a true story which is why I suspect it's ending is so unlike in the made for TV movies you usually see on the Lifetime Movie Network. Even the one's based on true stories! What's so frustrating about the movie is that it tries so hard to give us the impression that the two victims in it the newly wed Forrests Lindsey & Trevor, Summer Glau & Chis Carmac, are just a fun loving couple on their honeymoon cruise just looking to have a good time with each other and nothing else. In fact both of them are anything but and have as many bad traits as the "Happy Hungarians" Ben Luca & Max, Adam Tsekham Peter Katona & Sergey Russu, looking for action or young single as well as married women on board the ship!
After a night of drinking gambling and partying Trevor ends up lost with his by now drugged and boozed up wife Lindsey out cold with both her husband and memory gone! It was the "Happy Hungarians" who were partying with the Forrests who are the main suspects in Travor's disappearance! In fact it's later reviled on one the ship's security cameras that lover boy Luca, the romantic of the three "Happy Hungarians", was making out with Lindsey while her husband was out drinking and snorting coke in the ship's bar!
It's one of the ship's passengers the busty FBI woman agent Gwen Merced, Zoe McLellan, who's also looking for action, in that she's just separated from her husband, who smells a rat in all this missing person, Trevor Forrest, business going on the ship. Checking out all the facts Gwen finds out that things aren't exactly as Lindsey said that they were in Trevor being the all American boy she said he was. In fact Trevor was a party going coke head who lived off his parents money without a job or future in his father's business or anyone's else's. What even more disturbing is that the sweet and innocent as the morning snow Lindsey was not that much better!
***SPOILERS*** We do in fact get to see what happened to Trevor but it's so sloppily done that you don't know if it's for real or a drug induced hallucination on Lindsey's part. As for Lindsey herself she flies the coop, or ship, on a helicopter for first Tahiti and then New York City where she opens up a fancy clothing boutique on swanky Fifth Avenue! How in hell did Lindsey, who was dead broke, have the money to open up a business like that with out even having the cash for a down payment to do it? It's with the 3 million dollar settlement that she got from both the cruise company, in keeping what happened on the ship from becoming public, and Trevor's parents, in not exposing their son's drug and alcohol addictions, in thus having Lindsey keep her mouth shut!
