Everybody's Baby: The Rescue of Jessica McClure Reviews
The acting was bad, sometimes barely passable.
When Jessica has fallen into the well and the police shows up at the home, a woman is sent there to calm down the "upset mother" Cissy.
But she was much more calm than any of the people in the whole movie, there was just no reason for the other woman to be there.
You understood what emotions the characters were supposed to portray, but you didn't see it on the screen.
For example, one of the police officers is so disturbed by the poor baby is trapped in the well that the posttraumatic stress after the incident caused him to commit suicide.
The same man in the movie seems more like "Oh noez, I brokid kids leg. Police-cat is not amused".
It was so pointless watching the actors when they failed every single time to portray what they were supposed to.
I only showed sympathy for the movie as it was "Made for TV".
Aside from the bad acting, it's an OK watch.
As I said earlier, the terrible acting just makes it seem like nobody really cares, so you get very surprised when characters are suddenly breaking down crying at the thought of the child trapped and that a whole town would put up ribbons to show support.
You just didn't feel it.
I don't know if it happened for real or was "added", but I felt it was STUPID that the audience watching the event had time to set up rockets just in case the girl was rescued so they could celebrate by firing them up.
So what if she died then?
It was interesting to watch once, but the bad acting keeps me from watching it again for a couple of weeks.
