A great who done it!
4 January 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this on a movie channel on one of those days that nothing else was on t.v. I was really surprised! This a great who done it! Even after I saw it the first time, and knew how it ended, I still enjoy it.

Though none of the people are marquee property, the acting is top notch! Part of the problem is the movie was billed as a love story between Mia Sara, and Steven Bauer. So, I guess people walked of the theater disappointed, so that's why it didn't go anywhere.

If you like a good murder mystery, give this one a chance!
