Total Disaster
9 November 2008 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Total Stranger or Stranger In My House was so typical LMN movie you could almost tell the story without even seeing the film. Top this bad story with bad actors and you got it. Where does LMN get these terrible actors from? Especially the women? Lindsey Crouse as the lady of the house was just terrible. Looking painfully dumb and stupid most of the time. Anyone could fool her. And in the likes of another bimbo, played by Zoe McLellan, she gets fooled into letting the idiot rent a space in her home. Of course the bimbo is nuts. With as much warmth as an iceberg, this actress not only looks stupid but she acts so bad you don't really care. Bad casting on these two ladies. Paige Moss as the daughter at least had some believability. And veteran actor Jay Thomas was so wasted in this it was embarrassing. Then there's the jerk nerd lab assistant played by a huckleberry finn type Jay Paulson. He just went around with this dumb look on his face when he appeared.

These unforgettable performances and lousy script made this one of the worst I've seen on LMN. And I've seen a lot of losers.
