Deadbolt is dead in the water
23 September 2000 | by (Portland, oR) – See all my reviews

I used to like the character the Justine Bateman played in that Michael Fox sitcom...She was like a small jewel that plays relief to the main stone of the setting. Now she's supposed to be the main stone but in my opinion doesn't even come close to rising to the occasion. She's pale and confused. Sometimes I thought that she paused long enough before responding to effect complete break in character...has she forgotten her lines? So, what seemed a very shallow made for TV movie, was made even less exciting by a pretty slack performance. Nothing worth a real analysis here. Just don't waste your time.
