Storyline

Jessica Shepard is an on the rise police officer of San Francisco's esteemed police department, after having solved a big case about a serial killer. Her mentor John Mills is proud of Jessica as a father would be of his daughter, since Mills was the partner of Jessica's late father.

Not to mention a new partner named Mike Delmarco, who might be Jessica's next closest thing to a confidant. However, a man has been found dead and the two officers are brought into the investigation. What they find is a surprise when the dead in question was a man Jessica slept with, he being part of a list of one night stands that Jessica has engaged in.

Really bad
23 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Let me begin by saying - I love mysteries/thrillers and I really like Ashley Judd. I think she's pretty and a really good actress. But this movie is really lame.

They movie makers cheat throughout the entire movie. It's hard to explain without giving away the ending but the red herrings that they toss in are just unfair to the viewer.

Every time Ashley Judd drinks down another glass of wine and started to pass out, half of our audience started squirming in their seats (out of embarrassment), the other half just laughed out loud. It was pretty ridiculous. To top it off, the dialog throughout is mostly stupid.

The ending is as bad as the rest. No way I would ever watch again.
