The Perfect Family
8 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

****SPOILERS**** Annie Macintosh, Susanna Thompson, always wanted everything to be perfect in her life and through the unexplained workings of the "Twilight Zone" she got her wish. It came slowly to Annie at first in that after moving with her family into her new dream house the family dog Zonka changed from a common street mutt to a blue ribbon winning French Poodle in the blink of an eye! Trying to cope with this new and out of left field member of the Macintosh family Annie is suddenly confronted with the fact that both her children Tess & Sean, Alexandra Purvis Jaren Brandt Bartlett, have changed identities or appearances for the better as well!

Freaking out at what's happening to her Annie is later assured by her friend real-estate agent Yasmine Haleen, Laara Sadig, that everything is quite all right and as time goes by she'll get used to what happening to her and her family. Meanwhile Annie is slowly going off the deep end and her family including her now new, in appearance not name, and improved husband feel that she needs some rest to overcome her fears and anxieties by being committed to a sanitarium for a few months until she recovers.

****SPOILERS**** Refusing to be committed Annie tries to make a run for it thinking this is all some plot by everyone involve, her husband children as well as Yasmine, to drive her insane only to run into a brick wall or the "Twilight Zone" every time she tries to leave the house. Finally reality sets in with Annie, who wasn't exactly perfect, being replaced by a perfect Annie to complete the family portrait hanging on the wall. That due to Annie wanting everything to be perfect for her and her family, including the family dog Zonka, has finally made her the perfect wife as well!
