Making The Rules (2014 aka Abby In The Summer/Lionsgate DVD)

Picture: C Sound: C Extras: D Telefilm: C+

Abby (Jaime Pressly) is a gourmet chef, but after an accident she is home-ridden for the next few months. Bored of hanging around her caring husband and having no real work, she is visited by her friends, relatives and well wishers on her recovery ...that is until she runs into an ex-boyfriend Shaun (the infamous Robin Thicke). It might turn out to be a hot summer's passion and romance or just a boring time and a living hell in Jimbo Lee's Making The Rules (2014).

Abby is a hard working career woman, talented she dreams of becoming the head chef on her own.... however she it also makes her a control freak. She must be the one in charge, making all the decisions and everyone must work according to her rules, but she is thrown a monkey's wretch after an accident and is forced to take it easy for the summer. She then runs into an ex-boyfriend (noted above) who helps pass her boredom with nights (and days) of wild sex while her husband is at work. Everything is great for Abby, she has the best of both worlds... that is until she discovers she is pregnant, and sooner or later she decide which life she wants to live.

This telefilm was about a very independent woman, she is married to a hard working husband who cares and loves her, but she is more in love with what he provides for her than the man himself, and when she meets an ex-boyfriend she thinks he is the answer to what she's been missing in the bedroom. As long as her husband doesn't find out, but when she finds out she is pregnant, she faces the moral dilemma to decide whom she loyal to.

The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image and lossy Dolby Digital sound are on the weak side, par for the course on most TV movies today, so beware. Digital download is available, but there are no real extras.
