An American Affair
Release Date: 1997
Genre: Drama
Director: Sebastian Shah
Writers: Judd Laurance & Arshad Shah
Starring: Corbin Bernsen,Jayne Heitmeyer and Maryam d’Abo

Weird little made-in-Canada drama stars Corbin Bernsen as Sam Brady, a District Attorney with Senatorial hopes. To gain that coveted position, which could lead him to the Presidency one day, he sets up the current Senator’s son to get caught with ten grams of cocaine. At the same time, he begins a relationship with two women; a famous actress (her fame being totally forgotten when it becomes convenient for the screenplay) and a quirky woman who spends her time in meditation classes having weird flashbacks that wind up having no relevance to the plot.

Bernsen eventually settles into a relationship with the later woman, with things seemingly going well. Unfortunately, she becomes pregnant, and such an unmarried pregnancy would no doubt result in the end to his Washington, D.C. dreams. Bernsen proceeds to use his powerful influence to marry her in secrecy, arranging the date so that it appears she became pregnant on their honeymoon. Soon enough, though, Bernsen feels the need to get back with his former beau. From there, his life begins spiraling down with a series of events that leads to a finale that is actually quite surprising.

For what appears to have been a TV movie, An American Affair isn’t too bad. Bernsen puts forth his usual hard ass performance, and the cast of Canadian actors aren’t too shabby either. The script is typical, with plot holes and cardboard characters everywhere, but it works well enough to make a viewing possibly worthwhile. A lot of conventions are on display just to kill time, and admittedly, that does get annoying pretty quickly.

The best part of this mediocre movie? The scene that will have you crying out a new phrase…
STUNT TITS!
