Brother's Keeper (2002)

"Terrible"

Brother's Keeper (2002) Review


Does anything inspire as much horror as the title card, "USA Network Presents"?

Brother's Keeper -- not the 1992 documentary about a hillbilly who murders his brother -- is a ridiculously stupid story about a detective who tries to protect her brother despite the fact that he's a serial killer. Standard thriller ensues.

Anyone wondering whatever happened to Jeanne Tripplehorn (Basic Instinct), Corin Nemec (Parker Lewis Can't Lose), or John Badham (WarGames director) need look no further! Here they are, in this absolutely abysmal made-for-cable-and-released-on-DVD cop drama.

With atrocious production values and an awful, awful story borrowed from Seven, there's nothing much redeemable here. Thank God Jeanne Tripplehorm is as cute as she is, that she makes this movie just shy of torture to sit through. Though Jeanne, I have to say... welcome to a rare echelon of cable TV cuties inhabited only by you, Valerie Bertinelli, and M├Ądchen Amick.

Aka My Brother's Keeper.
