Storyline

A newly-wed NYC couple move into a low-rent luxury apartment only to be harassed by cryptic elderly neighbors. Matt (Dean Cain) and Jackie (Portia de Rossi) are living in NYC, brimming with that certain "glow" all newly-weds possess. They are in love despite failed attempts at pregnancy and a tight budget. One day, Matt meets a group of health-obsessed elderly people in the park. They seem kind, and offer Matt and Jackie a beautiful low-rent apartment in their building. How can the couple resist a luxury apartment with a state-of-the-art gym, cheap rent, and friendly neighbors? Jackie believes it all too good to be true when she notices a young couple in their building disappears, and elderly neighbors are watching her every move... Written by merryweather

A film with a 'glow'
15 September 2002 | by tricia-16See all my reviews

This is a good film, no a very good film. Well acted by Dean Cain & Portia De Rossi (Nell from Ally McBeal). Portia De Rossi surprised me as she was very good as Jackie. I did not like her in Ally McBeal but she proved she can hold her own. A very good performance.

Dean Cain is a very under-rated actor, who deserves more recognition for the good actor that he is. It never ceases to amaze me that he has not been cast as the lead in a major movie. He was absolutely excellent as Matt. Matt was such a trusting soul and was prepared to give the 'twelvers' (the old people) the benefit of the doubt, a touch of Clark Kent here.

The rest of the cast were excellent too. They were very convincing and we were certainly deceived into believing they were just nosy and not evil.

This film gets my vote as a top-rate t.v. movie and one that i would certainly watch again. A thoroughly enjoyable film and one i would recommend.
