Not the most compelling thriller.
26 June 1999 | by (Marietta, GA, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie has a variation of the plot where a smiling stranger enters another couple's lives and wreaks havoc. Here it's a pretty young woman who is hired to be a surrogate mother for a childless couple. She says she's a pre-law student wanting to earn money for her education but soon it is shown that she's deceiving them and problems start to arise. Unfortunately this isn't a great telling of this story; the pace always seems to be off a beat or two throughout.

What this movie does have going for it is a fine performance by Bridgette Wilson as the young woman. She gets all she can out of the role and definitely bears watching in the future. I would only recommend this film to someone who is a big fan of the thriller genre, as there are plenty better than this one, but a dedicated fan might get some enjoyment out of it. Peter Boyle, Steven Gilborn and Marne Patterson are among the others in the cast.
