I got this movie as it sounded like a cool movie, a bit on the scary side. Well, I was not amused.
For starters, Timothy Busfield's character was as shallow as they come. He is a computer geek and builds this computer that will run their home and they are the Guinea pigs. I won't go into it but I will say this much. He does spend lots of time working on it and little time w/ the rest of the family. That is pretty much all you see him do and he wears shirts and ties all the time even though you never see him leave the house. His acting here doesn't live up to his acting on Thirtysomething.
The rest of the cast of characters aren't any better. Jenny (the daughter) is the best character of them all and that isn't saying much. You get a hint of what the back history is on the parents (how they met in high school), but hardly anyone or anything else.
The acting was superficial and shallow to say the least. The premise has some plausibility, but in the end, was totally unrealistic and on the verge of farcical.
Basically, to put it mildly, it's one of those made for TV movies that's as bad as most. I actually thought it was an actual movie, but seeing how it was edited, I realized it was a made for TV movie.
I ended up fast forwarding through parts of it and basically wasted an evening watching this dumb movie.
Don't waste your time on it.
