Goofs

Near the end of the movie as Susan and crew are entering the government building, the US flag is improperly hanging on the wall. Proper flag-flying etiquette states that the Union (the blue field with the stars) should always be flown in the upper left section, regardless of whether the bars are horizontal or vertical.

Good for a TV-movie
7 March 2006 | by (NC) – See all my reviews

In this fact-based film, Susan and Gary Wilson and their two children Emily and Orin move into a new house in Monroe, La., across the street from the very helpful Steve Glover, a deacon in the church. Steve, who married his teenage sweetheart Nancy and knew Susan when they all lived in Mississippi, offers to help them in any way he can. He offers them the use of his pool and hot tub, even when no one is home.

The Wilsons get involved in church and community activities. Like so many girls her age, Emily hates getting used to a new place and says she has no friends. Orin also has some trouble adjusting, though he does become friends with the Glovers' sons.

Steve is just a little too helpful to the Wilsons, though he did take care of their house before they bought it. One reason he spends so much time with the Wilsons may be the fact his wife has a career (this may be why her house is always a mess). Susan, on the other hand, stays home. She runs with her friends and plays classical piano, and she is interested in improving her musical skills.

From the film's title, you know someone will be watching something they shouldn't. While Susan is taking a shower, getting in bed, and even making love, we do see blue and white images on a TV screen that look very much like what we are seeing.

At first I thought this would be just an ordinary TV-movie, no different from a hundred others like it. But as the movie progressed, Angie Harmon effectively showed us a range of different emotions. Her character had to go from wanting to hide from the world to solving her problem regardless of the embarrassment it might cause. Plus she was beautiful--she looked just like Sandra Bullock.

Jamey Sheridan also did a good job. From the very start, he seemed nice in the manner of a used-car salesman, though I won't say whether this makes his character guilty of anything. You'll just have to watch.

This movie raised a number of questions about privacy and Christian faith. What do you forgive, and how should you handle it when someone strays? And how much of our lives are we entitled to keep to ourselves?

I found this quite entertaining.
