My Thoughts: Cute little movie. I really love just about anything with Zooey in it. I was sorta disappointed with the ending though, it didn't feel complete. Maybe I'd be happier if I'd read the book though.

About: A fashion reporter stumbles on a murder investigation in the Nation's Capitol, only to be thrown for a loop when her police detective former lover is assigned to the case.
My Thoughts: Sooo good, I really liked how humorous this movie was too. The actress who played Stella was perfect. I'm not really a Lifetime movie kind of girl, but the main actress, Maggie Lawson, is on Psych. She's wonderful so I gave the movie a try. I will definitely be watching this again and checking out the book it was based on.

My Thoughts: This movie was so intense and action driven, I really enjoyed that. I wasn't satisfied with the movie's ending however.

There is literally no downtime in this movie though, if you aren't paying attention for even a minute, you'll be lost.
