Desperate
Verified purchase
The lead actress was impressive. The other actors were fine. But I am disappointed that the directors failed to do their research for the script. Why would a lawyer not know the most basic laws? Also, the lead actress was too hot to be acting so desperate in the movie.

THE DVD DID NOT EVEN PLAY IN MY DVD PLAYER. I TRIED ANOTHER PLAYER AND IT PLAYED IN BLACK AND WHITE AND WAS FUZZY. DISAPPOINTED..

In response, it turns out that I perchased the wrong format. I guess I did not see that part. I saw that it may be coming from another country and it did say in all formats.

A nice drama film showcasing how one person can affect change whether that be good or bad in nature.

I connected with this film's premise on a personal note because we all must be careful about who we let into our lives lest it potentially wreak havoc on our health and relationships.

enjoyable TV suspense film, with some surprises
This is a typical shot-in-Canada, made-for-cable TV suspense movie. It's low budget, with B-list or unknown actors.

Even so, I found it enjoyable. For while this film's story is mostly typical, it takes some unexpected turns.

Story concerns a typically perfect, yuppie couple. They're attractive, smart, successful, thirtysomething, and in love. Hubby is an intern at a hospital. He doesn't make much money yet, but his future is bright. Wife is a corporate attorney, who pays most of the bills.

Together, this Perfect Couple buys a Perfect House. It even has a pool, hot tub, and guest house.

In order to help pay the mortgage, they rent the guest house to a seemingly nice nurse from the husband's hospital. A nurse who turns out to be the Psycho Bitch From Hell. (Think of the "other woman" from FATAL ATTRACTION, only crazier.)

As a guy, I liked TIES THAT BIND because, unlike many films of this genre, it doesn't demonize men. The Pyscho Nurse tries to seduce the husband, yet he stays loyal to his wife. (One of those unexpected turns I was talking about.)

The Psycho Nurse also tries to seduce the wife, but she stays true to her husband as well.

The Psycho Nurse does more than try to seduce the couple. She's a whole boatload of crazy, with tons of dark secrets in her past, and she commits lots of nasty and downright evil deeds during the course of the film.

The DVD's cover is misleading. It shows a cold-blooded Nicole De Boer holding a gun, and suggests that she's the film's evil femme fatale. NOT. De Boer plays the Good Wife. She's never cold-blooded in the film, nor is she ever comfortable with a gun.

I guess De Boer is the film's biggest star, so the distributor thought they'd invent a shot of her looking femme fatalish with a gun, but the shot misrepresents the film's contents.

Even so, TIES THAT BIND is an enjoyable suspense film about a nice couple who are unfortunately saddled with a crazy tenant in their guest house (whom they can't easily get rid of, due to the lease). Yes, there is gunplay, and a whole lot more crazy, nasty stuff before the film's end.

It's not a great film, but it's one of the better made-in-Canada/cable TV suspense films out there.
