Storyline

A woman with two children believes she has three and her husband and oldest daughter play along with her to keep her balanced (or as close to balanced that a woman with an invisible child can be). However, when the family hires a new nanny, it is all just too much for her and she starts to blab. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Best! Lifetime! Movie! Ever!
24 May 2006 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

First off, watch the trailer on-line somewhere, and you'll get a pretty good idea of the badness therin.

Now, the sinister edge implied in the trailer isn't there ("Driven to the edge of insanity..."), instead there's a lot of absurd God talk and touchy-feely understanding. But that's what one expects from these dark suburban Lifetime- style movies.

That said, there is no beating the scene where the have a showdown with the evil Child Protection Services woman (as they all are, you know). She questions one of the other kids about her mom's craziness: "When somebody has a fantasy that nobody else does, that's a very dangerous thing." The precocious child's reply: "Oh, like Martin Luter King. He had a dream that no one else had." Ha! Take that!

The movie's ending is not touching as it is meant to be, but rather an even more insane cure for the problem - though not in any wild knife-wielding way. It that were the case the movie would be amazing instead of just absurdly amusing.

Rita Wilson is just...just...hideous in all ways. She is just a small piece of the larger puzzle that works to make The Invisible Child a masterpiece for those who love jaw-dropping crap-tastic television.
