Rattlesnakes is a rare movie to watch online and if the movie ended a minute earlier I really would have loved it. Or if that fateful final 60 seconds played out slightly different, it would have worked. Instead, it makes for an extremely frustrating conclusion to a well-paced, well-performed film that deserved a more satisfying payoff.
Times are tough for Robert McQueen (Jimmy Jean-Louis, Tears of the Sun). Despite his regular gig as a yoga instructor for hot and bothered young-ish housewives, Robert is facing eviction. Determined to keep his wife and free download, Celine (Robinne Lee, Being Mary Jane), and daughter in their home, Robert puts in some extra work in one-on-one meetings with a select group of women.
Robert keeps thinking of one in particular — Lizzy Hanson (Kathleen McClellan) — a passionate painter who’s in a loveless marriage with her husband Richie (Jack Coleman, Scandal). Concerned about Lizzy’s erratic behavior, Richie gets the proof he needs that she’s having an affair and is ready to get payback.
Lizzy isn’t the only one Robert is hooking up with as his “special services” also extend to Richie’s sister, Esther (Rya Kihlstedt, Charmed), and the wife of one of his business associates. Richie lures Robert into a meeting with Lizzy where the three husbands ambush him looking for answers. As the full movie unfolds they all learn secrets they would have been better off not knowing.
