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 »

Poorly Acted Film About a Kidnapping
10 March 2016 | by (Bangkok, Thailand) – See all my reviews

There are very few redeeming points in this 'made for T.V' drama about a high school senior who was kidnapped from a parking lot in Nebraska back in 2001.

Although the topic of this film is a fairly serious one, it is a huge disappointment in terms of writing, direction and acting. The movie starts out as a teenage high school drama, and ever so slowly and painfully gets worse and worse as it goes along. The dialogue is unbelievably and at best, poorly delivered. The most intense scene was a mind boggling cluster of bad lines, and inane acting, that it ruins any drama that should have been part of such a horrendous act.

Every part of this movie dissolves into your typical 'straight to video' movie.

2/10
