I watched Bittersweet a couple years ago on the USA network I believe. It was probably edited, but I liked it - of course I admire the female lead, Angie Everhart a great deal. She has a lot of potential, all she needs is the right material. I view films such as this in a completely different context than I would say, a big budget production.
Bittersweet, as I recall, is the story of Samantha, ( Everhart ) a young woman on a mission to exact revenge against the boyfriend who shot her, and then left her for dead during a burglary escape. She was carrying his child at the time, and being left at the scene, she took the rap and went to prison.
After Samantha's release from Prison a few years later, she embarks on a quest to kill a cast of people, who she feels were responsible for her setup. Along the way, she poses as another woman, and then gets a fashion makeover. Probably because she was in prison for so long, but more likely as an excuse to show Angie Everhart in all her model glory.
She also meets up with a down and out cop who has trouble keeping a handle on her bad ways, as she slowly but surely exterminates everyone on her list. Again, not a realistic premise, but I've always liked low budget films, so I found it entertaining. Though, in all of the action, the vendetta against her former boyfriend seems almost a side show, but there are plenty of other characters getting their just deserts, so no big deal. Bittersweet also features Eric Roberts as Mr. Venti, a stereotyped crime boss.
As far as cable ready B-movies go, I give it a 7.
