not bad...for a tv movie
13 December 2001 | by (France,Bordeaux) – See all my reviews

This film his a good little thriller made for tv. The story of Billy who find up on his dream that he have been kidnaped when he was a child his very interesting(Imagine finding up that the parents you lived all your life with his not your real parents and Worst that the woman who call herself your mom his a criminal). First of all let's talk about the good things about the film:

1 . Meredith Baxter was simply brilliant as Florence Tulane.She made a great baddy and her performance would have been great on a big screen(really she was that good).

2.Nathaniel Moreau was ok as Billy of course not the best but for a kid actor it wasn't bad at all.

3.I loved all the bits were Billy run far away as possible from his crazy mom (not his real one)who his chasing after him and who his getting crazier and crazier as she looking for him.

Now the bad things about it:

1.Good job the story and acting was ok because it was very poorly directed,the scenes were all over the places and somme of them didn't advance the story in any way.

2. Their his also the story of Billy's teacher who his starting to find his mother a bit odd and start doing research on Billy's parents.It was a good element BUT they didn't finish it.On the last scene with the teacher we just see her telling an other teacher "I had a talk with Billy's mom and she's odd"or something like dad but then you dont see the caracter anymore??????it's like if they started something but they were too lazy to finish it off,I dont know they could have done the mother killing the teacher or something.

2.The music was bad quality.

3. I loved the young girl Billy make freinds with on the bus but again they didn't know how to handle a good caractere and had to let her go after 15 minutes on screen.

Anyway not a bad film ,but definitely not great.it's what I call an ok film. But I tell you, you take Meredith Baxter,the same story , a good director and you put it on a cinema screen and it got what it takes to be a kick ass movie.
