Psycho Ex-Girlfriend – Review
Psycho Ex-Girlfriend – LMN – 2 hours and 0 minutes
Kara works in a bar but does community service as a therapist for her local church. One day Isabelle walks into her office and states that she is tired of being the good girl. She misses her days of sex, drugs, and rock & roll with her ex-boyfriend. Kara warns Isabelle that communicating with anyone from her past will cause issues with her sobriety. But Isabelle just doesn’t care. During Kara’s shift with her fiance Tyler, Kara enquires how Tyler knows the chief of police. Tyler admits he used to date his daughter Elle. When Elle sits down, Kara recognizes Elle as her patient Isabelle. Kara decides to keep treating Elle but things get complicated when Elle convinces Tyler’s boss to let her work at the bar. Now, the couple sees Elle day and night. And believe that she will make her presence known: one dead animal at a time.
While this movie’s plot thickens in the first 20 minutes, it stays on a slow fizzle from that point on. As you watch, you will determine that the couple should be more proactive instead of reactive. They need to block numbers, change numbers, find a new job, and even move. They just don’t do anything for too long and allow Elle to have power over their relationship. This movie has a strong setup, the lack of follow-through weakens its potential. This movie is background noise for a busy day.
I give it 2 out of 5 stars

Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance – Review
Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance – Lifetime – 2 hours and 30 minutes
Meghan Markle has been outspoken since she was a child and she has used that passion to become an actress on the T.V. show Suits. So when her blind date shows up 40 minutes late, she doesn’t want compliments, just apologies. And this Prince puts on the charm because he is a Prince. Her blind date is HRH Prince Harry of Wales. With a divorce and several bad dates, Meghan is not hopeful. And after being used for celebrity status, Prince Harry is not hopeful as well. But after a date that lasted all night long, these two make a vow to see each other again. As Prince Harry watches Suits and Meghan reads up on Princess Diana, Prince Harry takes Meghan on a special date. A date to one of his places in the world: Botswana. As the two live in their own bubble, they fall deeper in love. But when the bubble pops, can the pair make it?
This love story is a true fairy tale that went against all the rules. No more long engagements, no more royals only, and no more barriers. You will see these two connect through the feeling of being outsiders. Meghan as a biracial child and Prince Harry as a child who’s red hair made people question his paternity. While Prince Harry and Meghan are used to cameras, they will come under scrutiny like never before. While Prince Harry does everything to keep Meghan save from paparazzi and bigots, Meghan has to fight an inner battle between tradition and modernism. Even though you know the ending, this movie will tug at your heartstrings. And don’t worry, you will get your chicken proposal.
I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars

A Daughter’s Revenge – Review
A Daughter’s Revenge – LMN – 2 hours and 0 minutes
Elle developed a tight bond with her mother after her father left. And that bond continued to get stronger when her mother married David. Her mother confided that she believed David was cheating on her. After confronting and arguing with David, Elle’s mom kills herself. Elle’s rage turns into a thirst for revenge. She wants David to die but doesn’t want to go to jail. She needs to be able to pin the crime on someone else. She gets the opportunity when she realizes her friend Anna is in jail for a DUI. With a delusional vision of her mother, Elle decides to keep her friends close and her enemies closer. Elle convinces her stepdad to hire Anna and she offers Anna a place to say. Anna believes Elle and her family is a godsend. But Anna will see how evil Elle can truly be.
When smart girls go crazy and kill. This movie sets itself apart because you see Elle set up Anna each step of the way. Normally the setup is played in flashbacks when the manipulation is explained. You see the spiked drink, journal entries, and changed calendars. You get to see Elle’s descent into madness. This is one Lifetime movie that you root for the victim and not the crazy person to keep yourself entertained. Also, Elle didn’t need to be high tech to set Anna up. Just resourceful and cunning. So DVR and watch when you have time.
I give it 4 out of 5 stars
