Storyline

Rowena Price is a muckraking reporter for a New York paper. When her story about a closeted gay Senator who preaches family values is spiked, she quits and soon finds herself investigating the grisly murder of a childhood friend. Her friend had been dumped by ad exec Harrison Hill, so he's Rowena's prime suspect. Rowena gets a job at the ad agency as a temp, and she's soon the object of Hill's attentions. She's helped in her subterfuge by Miles Haley, a friend at the paper who has a secret thing for her. Everyone, it seems, has secrets, including Hill, who must keep his affairs from his wife - her money fuels his lifestyle. Murder will out? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Did You Know?

Trivia

Miles' phone number (seen when Hill reads the text message on Ro's mobile phone in the restaurant) is shown as 917-867-5309--a nod to Tommy Heath's classic rock hit "867-5309/Jenny", which repeats the phone number (sans area code) in the refrain. See more »

Quotes

Ro: [on hearing Mr Hill is cheating on his wife] I don't get it. Mrs Hill is pretty. I mean, she's really pretty.
Gina: Show me a beautiful woman, I'll show you a man who's tired of fucking her.

Lackluter thriller with A list stars
24 February 2008 | by MLDinTNSee all my reviews

This is a murder mystery; too bad there wasn't enough suspense or chemistry between the lead actors. Hallie Berry has picked some bad thrillers to be in lately. Berry plays, Ro, a reporter who does some investigating when a child hood friend turns up murdered. The friend had talked to her a week before her death and mentioned how she was having an affair with an ad executive, Harrison Hill. Ro decides to investigate Hill with the help of her computer geek friend, Miles. It turns out Miles is more of a freak than Ro thought. The investigation of Hill is supposed to be thrilling, but it really isn't. There isn't enough suspense. At the end Miles puts it all together and we get a montage of who committed the murder and how. Very sneaky. But not that great of a pay off.

FINAL VERDICT: If you don't see this, you aren't missing anything. There are better movies out there.
