When the detective is telling the mom what will happen with the Amber Alert, a California Highway patrol Officer is shown receiving a radio message that a vehicle was last seen going east on "U.S. I-95." Interstate 95 (I-95) runs north and south on the east coast of the U.S., it is thousands of miles away from California. U.S. 95 is in the western U.S. (a short portion is in California), but also runs north-south. Additionally, the proper term would be I-95 for Interstate 95 or U.S. 95 for a secondary road (as used later in the movie), but not both together. See more »
Elizabeth Rohm was the weakest actress of all the Law and Order ADA's and her acting is even worse here. Her attempts at a Texas accent are amateurish and unrealistic. Nor can she adequately summon the intense emotions needed to play the mother of a kidnapped child; at times while her daughter is missing she manages to sound only vaguely annoyed, as if she can't remember where she left her keys.
This is an important true story, so it's too bad that the awful acting of the lead actress distracts so much from the message. The rest of the cast is talented enough, but they just can't overcome Rohm's tendency to simply lay on a particularly thick imitation of a Southern drawl whenever actual acting is required.
