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 »
The only thing worse than the accent was the acting.
Amber's Mom: the worst acting I've ever seen. and I patronize community theater. I've lived all over the south including Texas. Unbelievable performance and less believable accents. Creepy Abductor was the best actor and I'm surprised he agreed to be in this thing. Too bad because the story deserved to be told well. Instead, it was a joke. Is this the norm for lifetime movies? I didn't think so, but it's been a long time since I watched such cheesy television. I only watched it because of the connection to real life legislation. And, I'm sure if there was such blatant disregard for the geography (Canada=Texas for gosh sakes?) there was probably such license taken with other historicity. The only thing I came away believing is that there is actually a real Amber Alert--but not because of the movie. Could that woman have actually been so stupid as to allow that guy to babysit that child? There's way more to THAT story.
