The calculating Monique thinks she has found the perfect mystery to showcase her new crime initiative and Win has no choice but to follow her lead.

By K. Harris HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on June 14, 2011
After finding enormous success with the serialized Scarpetta novels, crime writer Patricia Cornwell launched a new detective in 2006 with the stand alone book "At Risk." Arguably one of her least beloved novels, curiously she decided to follow it up with "The Front" in 2007. Both novels were tiny (about 200 pages), disjointed, and a relative disappointment to long time fans. So what to do? I've got an idea--why not turn them into a Lifetime Network movie event. Airing on successive weeks, these television movies introduced an unscrupulously ambitious Boston District Attorney and her personal cop (I know, I didn't really get it either--but he seems to work completely outside normal law enforcement channels). In truth, my expectations for network made-for-TV movies (especially on Lifetime) don't rate very highly--but at least these are colorful and entertaining. It's like TV comfort food. As long as you don't try to apply too much logic--these will pass the time in a relatively harmless, but sometimes silly, way. For the purpose of this review, I will comment on both as they were made and released together.

The principle characters are played by Andie MacDowell as the driven D.A. and Daniel Sunjata (Rescue Me) as her armed errand boy. Fans of Diahann Carroll will be pleased to see her here as Sunjata's wise but daffy grandmother. MacDowell has fun with her over-the-top role, but is rarely believable. She has some amusing moments, but the screenplays provide little consistency for her character. The choices that she makes (especially in The Front) defy every indication that she's supposed to be smart. Sunjata does well enough. Given the limitations of the plot, he carries the films despite their implausibility.

See if this doesn't awaken your movie copycat nightmares.
(1.) Another made for TV movie then following that failure was made into a DVD to recover costs.
(2.) Another forensics detective TV movie.
(3.) Another crooked politicians with a DA or some other lower level political personage vying for higher office - guv'nor no less.
(4.) Another detective chasing female coworkers and vice versa.
(5.) Another detective chasing misdirected leads resulting in unexpected (well, suppose to be but pretty obvious) suspicions and the usual plot twists.
(6.) Another unsolved long ago murders with ties to 3, 4, 5 above.

To all the above add juvenile dialogue; bland, read a single line of script acting, then cut, edit and shoot the next line, over and over; minimal expenditures for props and the settings consisted of a lab, a car, a room and lots of overhead prolonged helicopter views of a city. Very creative.

Storyline was either poorly written and/or scripted to be totally disjointed or the editing resulted in a lot of scenes being poorly spliced together.

From the geniuses at Lifetime:

This is a movie about Andie MacDowell as a high-power Boston DA... because when I think powerful DA, lord knows I think Andie MacDowell... and when I hear her Texas twang, lord knows I think Boston! Daniel Sinjata co-stars as an Apache (I'm not kidding) named Win (nope, not kidding). His grandmother is played by Diahann Carroll (still not kidding) who practices voodoo (lord how I wish I was kidding) and throws pennies at a Jamaican so he'll be scared and give her his dogs (totally not kidding).

Annabeth Gish plays the role of Sigourney Weaver***, who is in love with Win, and mopes around Knoxville, where no one (including Sigourney Weaver) sound like they're from Tennessee. Sigourney Weaver (played by Annabeth Gish) is trying to help solve a 35 year-old Tennessee murder that the Boston DA ordered Win to handle, because Boston and Knoxville are the same thing with no jurisdictional conflicts whatsoever.

[Did I mention that Win lives in a high school? It made no difference to the plot, but they made a big point about the fact that Win Lives In A High School. I guess that's Patricia Cornwell's idea of "hip" and "edgy".]

So at some point Andie MacDowell tries her hand at speaking French and sounds like a simple-minded Cajun. It was important for the writers to establish that her father is French and she can speak the language. No, it doesn't advance the plot. But I don't think these writers cared so much about plot. Meanwhile, Win has a touching encounter in the park with the step-father of a boy who is interning for the DA. He has a distinct Canadian accent. Did I mention this takes place in Boston?

This is a "made for tv" movie with good actors and a good story line. Easy to watch over and over. A nice addition to your DVD library.
