enjoyable, light film for Teri Garr fans
3 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are very few TV movies that are comedies. This is one, and, while trite, it was enjoyable and good, distracting entertainment.

Teri Garr fans will especially like it, as she is at the top of her form here as a young mom who overhears some strange doings on the baby monitor and sets out to investigate. The late Robert Urich is her husband and Alex Rocco is the hapless police detective. Garr gets good support from Susan Ruttan and Jeffrey Tambor as well.

For some reason, networks are loathe to produce comedies as TV movies. Once in a while, it's nice to see something that isn't a true life crime story or a gory murder. Although this TV movie is rather silly, it was still fun.
