Hurrah! Murder Most Likely! Probably the first thing that Paul did where he was less of the pretty face and more of the "Wow, fuck, did he just act that?!".

It's a very good movie in my view - very much a TV movie and you are never allowed to forget that (which is probably the worst thing about it) - Paul is excellent whilst being utterly creepy, scary and sexy in turn. It was obviously designed as an anti-Benton Fraser vehicle and he accomplishes that goal tremendously well. The character he plays is, on paper, completely unappealing and despicable, but because it is Paul, you immediately see why everyone bends over backwards to give him money and new chances. Without that charm and gravitas that he has in spades, the entire character would never work.

Look out for two scenes in particular: One where he is being utterly verbally abusive and taunting to his depressed wife, it'll scare the crap out of you, and one where his character rehearses his 'grieving' face. Chilling as heck.

As a plus point,Martha has the world's worst hair-style (and never shares a scene with her husband, sadly) and you see the early signs of the chemistry between Paul and Steven Ouimette.

This is the scene that I want to see the most, I think.

Poor Martha. She gets better hairstyles in later roles, thank god. :)

I've been wanting to see Stephen Ouimette in something else, too, so this is extra-good.
