Not What I Expected!
8 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I read the book by district attorney Don W. Weber who prosecuted this case and when I heard it was made into a movie I wanted to see it. Last Friday when I heard it was going to be on the Lifetime Movie Network I turned it on and watched the whole thing.

When the credits rolled I was bewildered by what I had just seen. This was one of the lamest movies I have ever seen. Lorali Simms is abducted within the first ten minutes of the movie and Robert does not show up for another ten. There is also no looking back on Paula's childhood, only a brief mention of the accident that killed her brother. It may have provided some insight to her wacked out mind if they had provided more information about her childhood.

A really disappointing thing is that Don W. Weber was the author of the book and yet there are only a few scenes of him in the movie. What a waste of two hours of my life that I will never get back.
