Acceptable mystery/thriller saved by veteran cast.
16 January 2004 | by (fabulous Las Vega$!) – See all my reviews

Typically strong performances from Cloris Leachman and Patricia Neal are the spotlight attraction of this mostly-forgotten slasher genre prototype/mystery about adolescent Ron Howard shaking a rural American town full of secrets to it's roots when he arrives to search for his biological parents. Meanwhile, citizens of the town are turning up dead. Coincidence? Probably not.

No really big surprises to be had here, as the plot takes many highly predictable twists. Regardless, HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY, LOVE GEORGE is a passable time-waster with some mildly effective low-key atmosphere, and credible performances by a cast of well-established players offer the story much needed validation.

Neither here nor there...you can certainly live without seeing it.

5.5/10
