The title ruins the movie!!!
31 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I usually don't watch Lifetime movies because more often than not they follow a formulaic thriller plot line that makes for a snoozer of a film but I made an exception due to Rebecca Budig's starring role as Sarah, who I have always loved on All My Children as the sassy Greenlee Smythe.

Well, the movie was bad and predictable and boring and your usual run of the mill Lifetime Thriller with an ending you can see coming miles away. Paul, who has a daughter Lily, marries Sarah and bad things start to happen - things that make Paul question Sarah's intentions since many of the things are done by Sarah herself albeit unintentionally (an accidental allergy attack for example) and makes Sarah suspicious about who is setting her up.

Monica is Paul's business partner who has feelings for him and makes it known to Sarah whenever Paul turns his back. She makes comments about how she will be there for him after Sarah is well and gone. Monica is also conveniently around whenever things go awry as the movie works overtime to get you to suspect her of foul play. Things get even worse when Sarah learns of Paul's last girlfriend dying after being electrocuted in his home while taking a bath. Sarah works to find out the truth about her death/possible murder and who is setting her up for a fall.

The problem? The movie's title of THE PERFECT CHILD gives it all away. Hmmm.. who could really be the bad seed? Could it be.. Lily? Paul's daughter? Ding! ... and it's painfully obviously the whole time which makes the anvils the movie is dropping trying to get you to suspect Monica, the jealous business partner, even more annoying.

4/10 and that's only b/c of Budig. Had she not been in the movie, I probably would have shut it off mid way, if that.
