Very Average
21 September 2005 | by Theo RobertsonSee all my reviews

This is yet another female friendly TVM though one that stars a relatively well known movie actress in the shape of Anne Archer who plays Theresa Sullivan whose husband is a cop killed in the line of duty . Seeing as it's a chick flick there's several angles the storyline can take

Widow whose husband was killed finds some skeletons in cupboard about relationship

or

Widow whose husband is killed finds herself struggling to make ends meet

or

Widow whose husband was killed finds out who killed him

Any of these premise would have worked as a theme/plot to a film but for some strange reason the producers chose all three as part of the storyline which means this TVM is rather unfocused . Not only that but if there wasn't already enough going on we have a subplot involving a teenage daughter's dislike of her mother's new boyfriend

Also keep your ears open for some laughable Noo Yoirk accents
