Eye on TV

This appeared in The Hartford Courant - May 10, 2004

It's unclear why anyone would want to cheat on Lauren Holly, but her husband in Caught in the Act (Lifetime, 8 p.m.) does, so she hires a private detective and when he lets her down, too, she begins to spy on her own. It's more enjoyable than a usual Lifetime movie, helped by Holly's twang and good cheer and framed by a nice country soundtrack by Marty Stuart, including good songs by Sarah McLachlan and Shelby Lynne. It's based on the real-life Tennessee private investigator Janice Holt, who appears in a role as a diner waitress.
