Tick Tock ★★★ 2000 (R)

In Bakersfield, California, trophy wife Rachel (Ward) and her pal Carla (Minter) plot to get rid of wealthy hubby (Dukes). That's only the beginning of a plot that stacks trick upon trick, double-cross upon doublecross. Think “Blood Simple” lite. It's a delightful guilty pleasure made all the more enjoyable by polished production values. 93m/C DVD . Megan Ward, Kristin Minter, Linden Ashby, John Ratzenberger, David Dukes; D: Kevin S. Tenney; W: Kevin S. Tenney; C: Jack Conroy; M: Dennis Michael Tenney.
