THE PLOT THUS FAR
A rookie mistake quickly spirals out of control when Kate Logan (Alexis Bledel), a young policewoman, detains an insurance executive under suspicion of rape. Fearing for her job, Kate seduces him in a desperate attempt to keep her error a secret, not knowing that her actions will send them both down an irreversible path of destruction.
WHAT WE THOUGHT
“The Kate Logan Affair” begins with a French businessman being the only one of his party who stays at a little motel, away from the conference he’s attending, instead of the plush resort where the conference is held and his colleagues are staying. This in itself is hard to believe but the story goes downhill from there. The chain of events that follows never once seem even slightly feasible. The loving family man who so easily has an affair; the Mountie officer who leads the train of unbelievable events.
If you’re going to make a bad movie, at least embrace its campiness and over-the-top unbelievability. That’s what makes the Lifetime TV movies more palatable, they aren’t afraid to acknowledge their inherent silliness. However, this seemed like it wanted to be a serious work of Canadian cinema. What am I supposed to make of that? Oh well, it’s nice to see Alexis Bledel’s pretty eyes and drive-in screen forehead in a movie again.
The DVD comes with no special features. . The A/V Quality is pretty strong with a robust Dolby 2.0 track. The transfer is good enough for standard definition, but there’s just not a lot of material to push. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase to Bledel fans.
