Synopsis (via Lifetime)

A jaded private investigator who specializes in exposing lecherous, cheating husbands thinks she’s met the love of her life in a chance encounter but as it turns out, this dream man may actually be her worst nightmare. Stars Lanie McCauley, and Matthew MacCaull (2023).

Recap/Wine Thoughts

The movie begins with an intense hook-up. They are stripping down and doing it on the table while someone takes photos of them from the window. The PI is scared off and goes home to have a glass of wine. Her name is Lucy, and she works for a private investigation firm.

August, Lucy’s associate, meets with clients and tells them that they are now empowered with information. Lucy says that being betrayed hurts, but the clients decide what to do next. 

When a new client, Clive, hires them to look into his wife, Adriana, who is having an affair. (It isn’t always the man who cheats.) Clive worries that he has grown apart and is quick to hire Lucy on the spot. He has done his research. 

Lucy is on the case and follows Adriana around town. She sees nothing notable. Her best friend, Cami, calls and constantly tries to set her up with guys. Cami is in a loving relationship with a hunk who reads named Charles. 

Clive and Lucy meet, and she tells him that his wife seems busy but unfaithful. Clive asks her to stay on the case longer because he has an intuition. Lucy shares about a rough childhood where her father was unfaithful to her mother. It started a long road of mistrusting men and not dating because she is dedicated to her job. Clive listens and even gets Lucy to crack a smile. Is she more of a romantic than she lets on?

Lucy spends a lot of time in a boxing gym and is surprised when Clive shows up in the same class. They partner up, and Lucy isn’t really suspicious at all. She does do an internet search for Clive, and everything seems to check out., 

Adriana catches Lucy following her and tells Lucy to knock it off or else. Lucy doesn’t stop and follows Adriana to her home to see her hooking up with HER HUSBAND CLIVE! 

Clive meets with Lucy and says he has feelings for her. At first, she turns him down, but then they get it on in her office! (Her bra is so cool looking!) August almost catches them mid-hook-up.

Then someone sends photos of Lucy and Clive making out outside of her work to Lucy’s cellphone. She is being watched and doesn’t like it.  

There is a break-in at Lucy’s house, and she chases after the burglar with a bat. August looks into some past cases and finds Dimitri, a wife beater with a personal vendetta against Lucy, has been released from jail.

Lucy hesitates to tell August exactly where she is going since she is hooking up with a client. Clive can sense that Lucy needs to get away. He takes her out of town to his cabin. They have a lot of sexy time.

August tracks down Demitri and learns Clive hired him to follow Lucy. August tries to warn his co-worker, but she is off the grid. So he looks for Clive’s cabin online and heads there. 

Lucy becomes worried after she realizes that she has no cell service. Clive and Lucy walk out into the middle of nowhere and get two bars. Lucy gets August’s voicemail and makes a run for it. Clive chases after her and says he loves her. Lucy knocks him back, and he fatally hits his head. 

Lucy stays with Cami, and they drink wine. Cami tells Lucy that she thinks Charles is cheating on her now. Things aren’t adding up!

To look into things further, August and Lucy go o a strip club and meet with Demitri. Someone lied to Dimitri and said they were Clive. 

The fake Clive attacks August in the office and steals some files. Lucy doesn’t notice because she is busy following Charles around town to try and help Cami figure out what is going on with her man. He is working with Adriana! 

Adriana tells Charles that she loves him, even though she sees him trying to drug her wine. He succeeds and poisons her. Lucy sees the whole thing happen while taking pictures from afar. Charles sees Lucy and chases after her.

Lucy tells Cami that Charles is no good, and he is quickly behind her. Charles strangles Lucy but gets distracted by Cami. Lucy then beats the crap out of Charles as the police arrive. 

The PI business is booming, and Lucy gets a book deal! The end!
