'Abandoned'
(Brittany Murphy, Dean Cain, Mimi Rogers, et al / DVD / PG-13 / 2010 / Anchor Bay Entertainment)

Overview: Mary Walsh delivers boyfriend Kevin to a hospital for routine outpatient surgery. But when Mary returns to take him home, he's mysteriously vanished. An administrator can find no record of him, and a police search turns up nothing. Increasingly frantic, Mary's taken to staff psychiatrist Dr. Bensley, who pronounces her unstable. Now she must not only find her missing boyfriend, but prove her own sanity as well.

DVD Verdict: I've been waiting for this movie to be released for ever - well, ever since Ms. Murphy passed away, I guess! Now having watched it, as a BIG fan of the late Brittany Murphy and an admirer of Mimi Rogers too, I have to say it was well worth the wait.

First off, I did enjoy the plot of the movie and at times it left me thinking on what was going to happen next. It does play some psychological tricks on you.

The acting with some of the unknown actors was a bit cheesy and not to believable. Right before the movie ended, it was dedicated: In memory of Brittany Murphy. I shed some tears. Sadly, as we all now know, this was her last film. She was such a talented, beautiful woman who left us to early! I know it will be a year soon since her passing, but I am still shocked! She did look a bit ill and a bit off, but perhaps that was simply the way her character was asked to look? R.I.P. Brittany Murphy.
