A single woman and her two children become a "Family in Hiding" in this 2006 film, done in Canada. Brenda Strong of "Desperate Housewives" fame plays the mother, Carol Peterson. After witnessing a murder, the entire family is put into the Witness Protection Program until Carol can testify. All I've got to say is, if you ever witness a high profile murder, run the other way. The Witness Protection Program is run by the Marx Brothers and is strictly from hunger, at least in this film. The family relocates and gets to live in a dump with no security and is given barely enough money to live on. The people in charge haven't created a job history for Carol, so she can't supplement the money they've given her.
The best part is that one of the thugs after the family infiltrates the Protection office and, after hitting a few buttons on the boss' computer, finds out where the Petersons are living. Now, don't you think they'd be a little more careful than that? Anyone ever heard of your computer being frozen when you're away from your desk? Or getting into your computer via a password? Or how about putting fake info on the computer and putting the real location, using a code, in a wall safe? MORONS. To protect and serve - forget about it. Carol figures out there's a leak immediately, and when she tells the man in charge of her relocation about it, he continues to give the new person in his office all kinds of information so he can call it in to the defendant.
Only a good cast can save this movie, and it does, even if the film isn't terribly exciting. Strong, a likable actress, and the rest of the cast are very good, and you really can believe they're a family. The end of the movie has a chiron that tells how many people the Witness Protection Program has relocated and that they have an 89% conviction rate as a result. With the way they are depicted in "Family in Hiding," this is bound to bring gasps of disbelief from the audience.
