Not as good as a Lifetime movie...
18 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

But it was OK. I'm a big fan of MHC, having lost count of how many of her books I've read through the years. The Cradle Will Fall was the first one I read and remains my favorite. Angie Everhardt was better than I expected and the end gave me the heebie jeebies just like it did in the book. However, the dialogue was pretty lame (who says "amiss" in everyday conversations?) and as aforementioned, somewhat talky. Still all in all, not bad.

I will add that Carol Higgins Clark should probably stick with writing,(I've never read her books, but I know she's a popular author) because she is a terrible actress. I saw her in the adaptation of her mother's book, A Cry in the Night and I cringed whenever she was on screen both in this and that movie.
