Bland but watchable.
18 February 2000 | by (hong kong) – See all my reviews

I saw this on HBO and found it uninspiring and bland. It is the story of a kidnapping of an adopted child ostensibly for money but in reality ... yes, you guessed it ... by the real mother. The characters are credible although they are very plastic and the is a neat little twist to the plot which rewarded my perseverance in watching to the end. All in all this is as entertaining as a pizza but is certainly no gourmet meal.
