Review

Our Score
Dina Meyer gives an enjoyable performance as a seductive schemer in this serpentine tale of deceit and betrayal. Teaming up with a cocksure, married co-worker (Jonathan Higgins), she cons her boss out of millions by filing a fictitious sexual harassment suit. From then on, the twists just keep coming, abruptly turning the duo's apparent perfect crime into a mess of blackmail and murder. But while the palpable air of paranoia and panic that ensues pushes Higgins's seriously unlikeable character into entertaining meltdown, Meyer's coolly calculating response proves a bit of a plot spoiler. Consequently, you may have already guessed some of the many final act surprises, though their melodramatic execution makes them fun to watch.

Summary

A married corporate employee enlists the aid of a colleague he is having an affair with to con their bosses out of millions with a fake sexual harassment case. However, they find themselves facing blackmail when their scheme is uncovered by a private investigator. Thriller, starring Dina Meyer, Jonathan Higgins and John H Brennan.
