Young siblings Abby and Ethan are adopted by outwardly perfect parents Eve and Raymond Goode, only to find that that their new guardian's remote mansion is far from the idyllic abode that it initially appears to be.
When Ruby Baker's parents are killed in a car accident, she and her brother, Rhett, must travel to Malibu, to live with Terrence and Erin Glass, their former neighbors. At first, all seems well. Ruby is making new friends at school and Rhett is getting more video games and flashy toys than he's ever had in his life. When Ruby speaks to her family's estate lawyer, he tells her that her parents have left Rhett and her $4 million. Suddenly, Ruby begins to notice odd behavior from Terry and Erin. Written by

Scared the living crap out of me!
Meryl Streep, that girl was not.
Who's Meryl Streep?
Oh, Zoe, she's like Katie Holmes to our parents, okay?
So, what's next ladies?
I have to go home.
Yeah, make... make that a that a block from home. I can't have another close encounter with my parents. They think I'm home in bed...

Truly awful. "The Glass House" has the air of something that has been sitting on the shelf for a while and is now being "snuck" into theatres. The script has so many holes in it, it could pass for Swiss cheese. The dialogue is pretty cheesy as well. Unfortunately, some very talented people get wasted here. Leelee Sobieski, normally an impressive young talent, plays one note here -- no, not even one note, one-half. Stellan Skarsgaard's American accent impresses, if not his acting, and Diane Lane seems to be in despair. Kathy Baker looks unrecognizable from the leading lady of "Picket Fences," but Trevor Morgan has some nice moments as Sobieski's younger sibling. I'd say "wait for the video" but it won't even be worth it then.
