The Wrong Car: Lifetime's best movie?
I'm not the demographic for Lifetime original movies, primarily because I'm male and you know how Lifetime movies play out.
To quote Family guy
Announcer: This Tuesday on Lifetime: Valerie Bertinelli stars in a Lifetime Original Movie.
Valerie: Y'know, Doctor, you said you were going to cure my cancer, but all you did was rape me! I'm starting to think I don't have cancer at all.
Doctor: Well, you're right. About the rape part. But I'm sorry, you still do have cancer.
Valerie: *bursts into tears*
Announcer: Valerie Bertinelli in: Men Are Terrible And Will Hurt You Because This Is Lifetime.
Every Lifetime movie is pretty damn misandric. Within moments of the movie starting and with no clues as to what the plot was I assumed rape and that is exactly what the film revolves around.
However despite all this The Wrong Car is a remarkably well made little film which though fairly predictable actually manages to entertain and build to a really quite good finale.
If you don't like Lifetime originals this is still probably not for you and as man it's very easy to be quite offended by these films but for what it is this is fairly good.
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
One day a Lifetime movie will surprise me and it won't be about rape or an abusive partner and every guy in the movie won't be a bad guy. Alas that day is not today
