Brief Synopsis – A women wakes up from a coma and finds out that her marriage and two kids was just a dream and must find a way to get her life back on track.
My Take on it – This is a made for TV film that caught my eye due to the way that the premise presents things in a more science fiction kind of way.
Unfortunately there seems to be little science fiction here yet they find a way to keep things enjoyable to watch unfold.
The plot and storyline is quite enjoyable despite it being overly predictable and simplistic the whole way through.
The cast do a nice job here and help make things feel a bit more realistic despite the film’s low production level.
The premise has so much potential and they fail to take enough advantage of that potential which is squandered far too much which makes things quite bland.
The film’s premise leaves the viewer so much to ponder and that’s great.
The problem is that they leave too much of the story open ended and don’t find a way to more thoroughly explore some of the situations that the characters find themselves in along the way.
Because of this, the story comes across as being much more superficial than it should be which is a slight shame.
Bottom Line – Fun idea that is a bit too predictable yet still stays enjoyable. The cast help make this story feel more realistic and despite the low level production value of this story, it all seems to work well. The story misses a few great possibilities here and this makes parts of the story feel much too bland. The film’s premise is able to leave the viewer with lots to ponder which is fun even if the story itself chooses not to explore the situations that these character find themselves in a deeper way.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – The aquarium scene is filmed at The Living Aquarium in Draper, Utah. The shark tank is an actual exhibit with the same bleacher seating you see Molly & Thomas are sitting on. (From IMDB)
Rating – BAFTA Worthy (5/10)
