Did You Know?


This film marks the first time in the "Jesse Stone" series where someone was not murdered or 'shot and killed' on-screen. See more »


The kidnapper of the baby renamed Eric leaves her own already-dead baby Eric in the desert with the kidnapped baby's hospital bracelet to make his mother believe he died after being kidnapped so they would stop looking or him. However, it turns out the kidnapper's original dead baby has both a birth and death certificate after living only one day in the hospital. No hospital would simply give a new mother of a dead baby the body to dispose of, and if she had stolen it there would have been an investigation to coincide with the kidnapping, which would have led to an immediate conclusion. Finding the birth and death certifications helped Rose close the case, but introduced implausible circumstances. See more »

A Different Direction for Jesse
2 March 2009 | by (Sarasota, FL) – See all my reviews

This is clearly written as the first of two or three stories. It continues several of Robert Parker's characters very well, while seriously taking a couple along different paths. Most notably, Jesse's character has gotten more serious, and more challenged by life. There was always the sense in Selleck's portrayal of a wounded soul . . .much more so than in the books about Jesse Stone.

Overall, I liked this movie a great deal. I liked the expansion of William Devane's Dr. Hix character ("Dix" in the novels) and Suitcase Simpson's continuing confusion from his previous coma is still amusing, and occasionally disconcerting. But, although I liked the character of Rose, she is no replacement for Molly. Molly and Jesse's banter from the earlier movies is sorely missed. It added the levity needed as a counterweight to the heavier story lines.

I did like those story lines. The shooting of Healey at the beginning of the show starts the story with a bang, and Jesse's dogged determination to track down whoever is responsible is completely in character, even if it does hurt him professionally. The other story line, about the mother looking for her lost child, seemed at the beginning to be entirely predictable, but then it was not. Camryn Manheim, as the mother, is amazingly good here.

And may I just say that I love the music in these last couple movies. The music has gotten much stronger. Piano-based with a feel of Ravel or Satie, the soundtrack composer was listed during the credits, but I didn't catch the name. I might consider buying this soundtrack.

I liked the ending, but it is clearly leading to the next movie. I can only hope that "Jesse Stone: No Remorse" finishes up a couple of these story lines. I'd like to hear what's happening with Molly. And although I think they tied up the story of the lost child fairly well, the plot with Geno Fish, and the shooter of Detective Healey, seems to have much more to play out in the next movie. And of course, we need to find out what happens next with the police chief of Paradise.
