Cowboy Conundrum

Ashley Scott in A Woman Deceived (2017)

Elizabeth (Ashley Scott) had planned it as a treat for her husband Bill (David DeLuise), some time away on a dude ranch so that he could act out his fantasy of being a cowboy. Unfortunately a fall from a horse ended up killing Bill, leaving their son Tyler (Luke Judy) fearing he will lose his mum, and Elizabeth running the global tech company which Bill built. It is on one of her business trips that she runs in to Travis (Jay Pickett), a cowboy who worked at the dude ranch, and things between them move quite quickly with Travis leaving his job after a few romantic days with Elizabeth in Miami and returning with her to her mansion. Everything seems perfect especially as Tyler and Travis get on, that is until Detective Morrison (Brian Krause) shows up and tells Elizabeth they are re-opening the case involving Bill's death and that Travis is their main suspect.

"A Woman Deceived" is simply the regular sort of thriller you find shown on TV. How regular? Well in these movies there is always a detective who shows up and has maybe 3 scenes max and the chances are the part will be played by either Brian Krause or Lochlyn Munro, in this case Krause was the actor with an afternoon spare to record his part, or at least that is what it feels like. As such the storyline to "A Woman Deceived" is basic with Elizabeth coincidently bumping in to Travis and ending up falling in love with him extremely quickly, it isn't really a spoiler when I say that Travis is not what he seems and Elizabeth along with their son ends up in danger. It is all extremely standard stuff and even the dramatic parts of the movie seem to be rushed as if everyone was just trying to get through this.

Jay Pickett in A Woman Deceived (2017)

The irony is that the ordinary nature of "A Woman Deceived" is not the main problem with the movie. Nope the problem comes from the scenes which cover the whirlwind romance between Elizabeth and Travis as not only do they seem to never end but they are incredibly cheesy. In fairness before that there is also plenty of cheese when it comes to Bill telling all his friends how much he loves Elizabeth with the sort of dialogue a teenager might write.

What this all boils down to is that "A Woman Deceived" is a basic and at times weak made for TV movie which is the sort of thriller which ends up background noise whilst you find yourself doing something else after you have started watching.
