The Place For The Latest Movie Reviews
When Bianca finds out her boyfriend cheated on her with Dory, a classmate, she's furious and out for revenge. Bianca and her best friends, Fallyn and Sarah, team up to play a prank on the girl to make her pay. The three lure her to a remote location, intending to abandon her, so she has to walk home alone in the dark. But, when Dory doesn t show up to school the next day, everyone, including Bianca, starts to worry. It s not until Dory's dead body is found and Bianca, and her mother go to the police, that this childish prank leads to an more adult outcome -an outcome where one murder may not be enough to silence the truth.
Made for Television movies are a hit or miss thing and those made for The Lifetime Channel come with plenty of drama but at times they lack in other areas such as story-line so even though this looked like a good crime story I went into it with an open mind. The story involves four teenage girls, three of them have a little "click" going while the other lone girl is an outsider. The three decide to play a prank on the girl which goes terribly wrong. The story sounds and is one that has been done before but this is one of the better ones especially since it is a made for Television movie. The young cast did a great job playing their roles and Cynthia Gibb is terrific as the mother out to prove her daughter is not a murderer.
The production values here are what you might expect, it's no better or worse than any other Television movie but isn't bad either. What makes the film better than most besides it's cast is that the story allows for plenty of suspense to go along with all the drama which is something that is normally lacking in a film like this. The film starts off a bit slow at first but it picks up as it goes along, if you can over-look the film's flaws and obvious story-line then you should enjoy this one a bit more than all the other made for Television movies that came before it.
