Talk about telegraphing the plot..first the setup, then the intracte, then the coup de gras....this was a typical woman driven romantic scheme...meet an old flame, let him fumble around and then sink the hook...its as easy as catching fish...i'm sure patricia helfer felt way out of place trying to pretend she had a lot of personal fears...and of course there are the complications....architects want to do raw designs and writers want to write children stories....aren't they the epitome of perfection ? ....instead of watching this piece of fluff, curl up with a good book by ayn rand
