About 3/4 of the way into the movie. The Mom is coming home and pulls into her driveway. As she enters the drive, there is a car already there. When she gets out of her car it is the only one in the drive. See more »
The basic premise of Playdate is one that has been used, tried and tested in at least a dozen movies i can name off the top of my head.
ie'Family move in next door and attract curiosity from there neighbours by odd or suspicious behavior.'
Because these types of films are not new to the genre, there storyline can be stale and formulaic.
However with good performances and a solid screenplay, the antagonist of this movie is ambiguous throughout which leaves us wondering who to trust.
I find that in poorly made movies, the actors respond to situations differently to the way i would or the way reality would dictate.(making it unbelievable) The poorer the movie, the more unfitting and ridiculous the actors respond.
Basing the movie on the unbelievability of there performance I would give it a 5.5/10, although that's not standard for the whole cast.
The end of the movie leaves a few unanswered questions, which is fine as long as it doesn't leave holes in the story, this one doesn't, but i find a bit of resolve would help the conclusion.
