In a nutshell, it's an interracial update of Fatal Attraction, except the performances of the two lead actresses are laughable, not that I've ever considered Beyonce (pretentious accent on the E) Knowles to be a particularly good actress... or singer (sorry, just my opinion).
This is a tv-movie-of-the-week at best, with all the cliches from the umpteen crazy-bitch-from-hell films which precede it and is nothing short of unintentionally hilarious, especially when the last 15 minutes makes it all about Beyoncé as she competely sheds her family-mother-from-affluent-background character and turns all ghetto. It was laughably pathetic! I actually sided with Ali Larter!!
Of course, Beyoncé had to have one of her own songs playing over the closing titles. Egotistical bitch!
2/10
