CHICAGO – I wonder how the movie history books will remember Brittany Murphy, who died suddenly at the end of 2009.

The film works about as well as your average straight-to-DVD thriller but distinguishes itself a bit due to Murphy’s underrated acting ability, but this actress deserved a more fitting final note.
