Picks and Pans Review: An Unfinished Affair
Convinced that his wife will soon die of cancer, art professor Tim Matheson has an affair with a spunky student played by Jennie Garth. But when the missus's cancer goes into remission, he tells Lolita to take a hike. Not likely in a movie where Garth is listed as co-executive producer! From this point on, it's attempted murder, actual murder, an affair with Matheson's son and even a surprise visit from the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service—of all people. A gen-X Fatal Attraction, this farfetched but entertaining melodrama is enlivened by lines like: "I wasted a year of my life waiting for that woman to die."
