Not bad... But..,
Okay. This is a pretty good nail biter even though it has all the stereotypes of the genre...perfect housewife...sexpot villain...good looking but shallow and sneaky husband...predictable ending. Gone With The Wind it ain't but it still was better on a snowy Sunday night than ploughing the driveway. But once again we have a film made in Canada and subsidized by the Canadian, Ontario and Quebec governments that is set in Philadelphia.(!!!) We prostitute ourselves repeatedly this way because with the remarkable inferiority complex of the Canadian film industry, we convince ourselves that nobody will watch a movie set in Montreal, Ottawa, Vancouver or wherever. We create a few jobs for Canadian film editors, honey wagon drivers and second rate actors that way, but do nothing to enhance our national image. As a taxpayer in Ontario, why am I promoting Philadelphia?
