About the Movie
In post-Hurricane Katrina New Orleans, disgraced cop Ben Chaney (Josh Lucas) has to deal with his drink problem while investigating the murder of a beautiful cellist (Lake Bell). In a supernatural twist he gets help from an unusual quarter - the ghost of the victim herself. She's seeking to get justice for her brother (Nick Lashaway), who was convicted of her murder, but recent events lead Chaney to investigate an untrustworthy country club owner (Cary Elwes).
Just a really poorly conceived and executed film. the ghost element if laughable. It's a a shame. A good cast trying to work with a really bad piece of writing.
This movie felt like an 8th grader filmed it - no offense to 8th graders! You would think that a Hollywood film with actors of this caliber would be of better quality. The story was filled with cliques, and it was very annoying that it ended exactly as you would expect, only it took forever to get there and was filled with cheesy lines along the way. Don't waste your time or money.
Get it while 99Cents- Good Movie.
To the few reviewers who said this movie stinks, they are just just wrong. Perhaps they are salty for paying 7 bucks for a rent (it's 99 cents currently). It's a nice mix of of murder, cop drama with a touch of the ethereal and a nod to shakespeare in one character. Whodunnit is not right in your face. Sure, it's not a masterpiece, but a great 100 minute film with a New Orleans vibe. Admittedly some of story could have been a little more detailed, which an extra 20 minutes couldve helped, but worth a watch, espcecially now that it's 99cents.
Filmed recently, the now in theatres thing, it's not yet gotten a rotten tomatoes right up and 12 reviews here, mostly positive. Skip the trailer and check it out.
