Have to Wonder
5 November 2006 | by (MidWest) – See all my reviews

I always wonder when someone gives a review and hones in on some obscure actor. Looking at the reviews made by another poster about the kid who plays the young son, well .. he is from the same area of Canada and mentions the child in almost every review he has written on IMDb. Coincidence? I think not.

As for this movie, I'm only 20 minutes into it and I've already figured out who "done it." Shelly Long's career sure went into the dumpster, didn't it? I think I'll switch over to the news.

Why must we write 10 lines of text? Some movies don't deserve one line.

The best thing so far about this movie is the house.
