I watched this movie, because it's Friday night and it's Pick-A-Flick night on Lifetime Movie Channel. But 15 minutes into the movie, it was obvious that this was a remake of "Strangers on a Train." Having watched "Accidental Meeting" a few days ago - not a bad movie - I wasn't really in the mood to watch the same plot again, but I gave a try.
What a waste of time!
First, the writing was bad. The dialogue was inane, and unlike "Accidental Meeting," it didn't even make much sense. The writers didn't seem to know how they wanted to end this thing, and seemed to lose their own train of thought. Second, the acting was pretty bad. The delivery was flat and strained - but that's excusable, given the lines they had to deliver!
I usually enjoy Lifetime movies, except for the almost obligatory bedroom scenes, and I usually rate movies higher than the average, but I cannot recommend this at all, and a 3 is overly generous!
