Goofs

When they arrive in Montana, they first are in Livingston. The next stop is in Deer Lodge, which seems logical enough because it's about 145 miles to the west following I-90. But the next place they show up is Laurel (by the waterslide), which doubles back THROUGH Livingston and then another 100 miles east on I-90. The last stop, where they are ultimately found (Rollins) is on the west side of Flathead Lake, 425 miles doubling back. The fact is, Livingston is correct, and Rollins is correct, but they didn't stop in Laurel, or Deer Lodge necessarily. Their path was from Livingston to Belgrade, then just past Deer Lodge they got off I-90 and worked their way to Salmon Lake before eventually arriving in Rollins. See more »

another prodding Lifetime kidnapping movie
18 October 2013 | by See all my reviews

Anne Sluti (Sara Canning) is a 17 year old girl in Nebraska who gets kidnapped by a crazy Tony Zappa (James Van Der Beek). LeVar Burton plays police detective Mike Timbrook.

It's a slow moving Lifetime movie. The kidnapping is compelling but the story just drags along for far too long. There isn't enough depth in the story. James Van Der Beek isn't menacing enough. He just doesn't act crazy well. Maybe the investigation shouldn't be half the movie. Maybe if this was a tough character study of Zappa. Maybe it should be just a two person play. Maybe if the production value was more than the standard TV movie.
