DEADLY HONEYMOON on Lifetime Movie Network Review

Summer Glau in Deadly Honeymoon

DEADLY HONEYMOON is a new original Lifetime Movie Network film which airs tonight, Sunday April 25, at 8pm ET/PT. The movie follows two young Denver newlyweds, Lindsey (Summer Glau) and Trevor Forrest (Chris Carmack) as they embark on their honeymoon cruise. Unfortunately, this seemingly perfect couple turns out not to be so perfect after all.

After strange encounters and a night of wild partying, as well as infidelity, the passengers and Lindsey realize that Trevor is missing and might have fallen overboard. An investigation is started which includes an FBI Investigator (Zoe McLellan), who happened to be taking a vacation on the cruise as well. Soon questions are raised about Trevor’s death, was it really an accident or did someone push him to his death?

While Deadly Honeymoon is a mystery/thriller that starts out with a pretty interesting set up, it unfortunately is not as exciting as you would expect. The film sort of ended abruptly and I was hoping for a more shocking ending. There were some good moments, but overall you should expect something pretty simple, no big shocks or surprises in the end. That said if you want to relax and feel like watching a movie tonight, this might keep you entertained.

As for the cast, I found it fun to see Summer Glau in a different role than we are used to see her in. She is the main character of the film and it was interesting to see her evolve throughout the film. Another familiar face is Chris Carmack (The O.C.) who plays the not so perfect husband. I would say his character is pretty similar to Luke in The O.C. and of course in this case it works with the story. Finally, Zoe McLellan (Dirty Sexy Money, JAG) plays the FBI Investigator who sees through the lies.

Overall, this is not the best Lifetime movie that I have ever seen, but it is sort of entertaining and the cast was able to bring the characters to life. So if you’re looking for something to watch tonight, Sunday, April 25, you might want to give Deadly Honeymoon a shot.
