Storyline

Tanya Sullivan (alias Sexykitten), mother of teenager Molly, with a crummy cosmetics sales job in Pittsburgh, meets over Internet a great gay, casino employee Joe Donnely (alias Jerseydude), an ex cop -made to resign after testifying truthfully against the PD- and divorced tender father of teenage son Teddy, who chose to live with him but preferred Rhode Island where his mother still lives. After months of hot mail, Tanya flies a first time to Atlantic City and they start to have hot sex. Once she's pregnant, she tells Joe she was abused by her wife-beating father, and is again by her husband Mark, a gangster. He realizes paternity is uncertain, but stands by her, and after threats and insults from Mark flies to Pittsburgh, with his gun; from then on everything goes horribly wrong...

Goofs

When Joe is meeting Tanya for the second time at the airport, he is seen carrying a bouquet of flowers for her. He then goes to the men's room, and the flowers are never seen again. This is not a goof because right before he enters the restroom, he walks by a trash can and the camera focuses on the trash can indicating that's where he put the flowers. See more »

Excellent film and pairing
11 August 2006 | by caa821See all my reviews

The two leads here may not have the star power of Eric Roberts' sister or, say, Harrison Ford - but I'd rather watch either of them than their more acclaimed counterparts. I'd spend two hours watching Anne Heche sitting, looking at a wall while the paint dried. She was perfect as the vampish sexpot here. Eric looked a little tired at times (some of it due to the characterization) and parts of his performance were a bit "wooden." However, this can be excused. If my count is correct, according to his IMDb biography, he has been in 14 productions either released in 2006 or for release in 2007. This picture is interesting throughout, and does something even a lot of top-budget films don't accomplish. The scenes and situations show a realism throughout, in terms of the sets, locations, and presentation - for example, the casino in Atlantic City, Roberts' and Heche's respective dwellings, and all the other sites. The supporting cast also all ring true. Although the A+ types such as Tom Hanks/Meg Ryan get the major big screen gigs - and while I enjoy their pairings, I'd just as soon (maybe prefer) seeing Heche and Roberts in one of that type of production.
