  1. The script and the performances are all fine, but it's very slow going.
  2. Might make a fun Lifetime TV movie -- if it weren't quite so morose.
  3. Reviewed by: R. Emmet Sweeney

    Spectacularly incompetent, Don't Tell races into self-parody before the end of the opening credits.
  4. The kind of witless production that should rightly be cluttering the discount bins at your local video store.

    Great movie for fans of this kind of drama, sometimes slow going, but there's still not enough time to fall asleep.
