Skele­tons in the closet . . . and a she-devil on her trail

Irish Daily Mail - - Coffeebreak -

A TWISTED re­venge thriller with echoes of Fatal At­trac­tion, Un­for­get­table prom­ises more than it even­tu­ally de­liv­ers, and in­deed ends up be­ing the pre­cise op­po­site of its ti­tle. By the time you’ve passed the pick ’n’ mix on your way out of the cin­ema, you’ll barely re­mem­ber it.

Rosario Daw­son stars as Ju­lia, a woman with a hunky fi­ancé, David (Ge­off Stults), and a chance of a new begin­ning out west. Her last re­la­tion­ship ended badly, with do­mes­tic vi­o­lence and a re­strain­ing or­der. But David seems a proper catch. She doesn’t tell him about her vi­o­lent ex.

The only hitch, but what a hitch, is that David comes with a daugh­ter and an up­tight ex-wife, Tessa (Kather­ine Heigl), who finds the skele­tons in Ju­lia’s closet and plots her down­fall.

Most of this is well acted, much is wellscripted, but film gets over­wrought and plain silly. When Cheryl Ladd ap­peared, I could hardly con­tain my mirth.
