The Poison Ivy series is no doubt bad and unfortunately not really the good kind of bad outside of a few laughable lines and how some of the sex scenes were “tastefully” shot. On the plus side, for the most part the acting isn’t bad.
Sundown actually isn’t a half bad little comedy with likeable enough characters and some decent club music that will make usage of your surround sound system. The DVD released through Lionsgate has a lengthy making-of featurette and some deleted scenes while the video and audio transfers are both top notch for DVD.
The American Side starts out well enough as a throwback crime-mystery before, for whatever reason, the writers decided to throw in a “Da Vinci Code”-like story arc that really failed to connect. On the plus side, the cast isn’t bad led by Greg Stuhr (who co-wrote), Camilla Belle, Matthew Broderick and Robert Forster.
