well... not great!

There are some good actors in this. I just wish the actress chosen for the heroine were a better actress. The plot isn't bad, but the writing ain't great. The interpersonal scenes, such as between the heroine and the cop, the fbi guy and his boss... I zipped right through those, because they drag it down. The pacing is awkward, the acting is mostly unconvincing. I'm thinking that since it's a tv movie, and it's the nineties, maybe it was aimed at soap-opera fans. It's too bad, 'cause it's not a bad story, and there is some good acting (Rosalind Chao comes to mind), but they're doing the best they can with what they have to work with.

Frustrating stew of credibility problems

Not sure what I expected, but in many ways this was a disappointment of a thriller. The protagonist's (Vanessa Marcil) attitude, her intent from the very beginning to get her son back (but not the husband), had me confused. A little back story of marital problems would have been most welcome -- especially since the actor portraying the husband (Thomas Gibson) acted rings around the official police detective love interest (James Wilder). The whole FBI subplot thing -- including the courtroom scenes -- had no credibility at all, and Agent Lassiter (Leland Orser) was such a chore to watch that at one point I considered just turning the blame thing off. And the wife's best friend (Rosalind Chao) was never even given the dignity of a name. Maybe some other viewers will be satisfied with the ending. I do not feel that much of a job was done knitting up plot lines. I was left thinking, "Wait, is that all there is? What about A and B and C?"

A Big Surprise

This story starts out very calm and quiet in a average American town with a married woman, Vanessa Marcel,(Sydney Carpenter),"Storm Watch",'02, who is offered a career in the film business, which she had prior experiences. However, she loves her husband, Thomas Gibson,(Matthew Carpenter),"Come Away Home",'05 and her little son and decides to stay home and be a good mother and wife. Matthew Carpenter does very little communicating with his wife and they do manage to sleep in the same bed and things do happen, once-in-awhile. It is at this point that I begin to wonder just what is going to make this film interesting and is it going to be a good mystery. As this film progressed further, I was very much in for a Big Surprise and never stopped looking at the screen. Vanessa Marcel all of a sudden appears are a very charming young woman who has an outstanding female figure and is full of life and determined to find out some very dark problems in her marriage. You will enjoy this film and it will keep you guessing right to the very end.
