It was a good movie, but...
23 September 1998 | by (British Columbia, Canada) – See all my reviews

While the movie has the same sense of mystery and intrigue surrounding the Mary Higgins Clark book that it's based on, the viewer sort of gets lost in the fact that they're watching a 40-something Connie Selleca try to play the role of a 25-yr-old. It's almost laughable that Beau Starr, who plays her father, looks about the same age. This movie is another great example of a fantastic book becoming a fantastic movie. Mystery fans will not be disappointed -- there's enough intrigue in this movie to keep you asking..."What happened? What's GOING to happen?" If it hadn't been for the miscasting (Simon McCorkindale and Connie Selleca are fine actors, but shouldn't be playing roles of people in their mid-twenties and early thirties), this movie would easily be a nine. Even with that though, the movie rates a solid seven as a good watch, and the beautiful scenery bumps the movie up to a nine. A must see for any Mary Higgins Clark fan!
