This is one of those movie that you just love and hate. Judith is such a bitch in this movie but shes awesome. And this movie is soo much like real life, because there are mothers that tend to get way to overprotecting of their children, and are just obsessed with them. Still loved the movie.
Rick Schroder is a really good actor! Did you know that? Judith Light manages to creep the crap out of you (with a little help from blue contact lenses), but still make you feel sorry for her when she's put to death. Warning: this is a true story!
This film tries its hardest to be suspenseful and thrilling but you couldn't get an ounce of suspence from it if you squeezed it for all it was worth. The acting is actually not that bad but the plot is so contrived and predictable. I would easily recommend that you skip it.
