Good Grief
14 June 2014 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

In a mournful opening scene, pretty blonde daughter Emily Osment (as Ariel Morgan) and likewise pretty blonde mom Victoria Pratt (as Dana) attend the funeral of their father and husband. Nearby, recent widower Paul Johansson (as Adam Smith) places flowers on his wife's grave. He has recently moved from Seattle into the neighborhood, with handsome stepson Gregg Sulkin (as Ben Woods). The younger man has bountiful lips and mismatched socks, which are noticed by Ms. Osment. They attend the same college. The sock notice given to Mr. Sulkin is one in a pattern of oddities which provide the most intrigue in this otherwise routine TV movie. You do get the feeling writer Shelley Gillen and director Vic Sarin are trying to make it interesting...

Another highlight is the color photography, also credited to Mr. Sarin. The attractive leading players are given good support, especially by veterinarian Richard Karn (as Cameron Morgan). The keenly observant neighbor kid, young Jaden Rain (as Brooks) seems to have some ties with the whole "A (family member)'s Nightmare" series, from Sarin and company. Alas, this story's weakness is difficult to overcome – the characters often lapse into amnesia. They don't seem to catch on to events, from scene to scene. Most irritating example of this is the Dixie Chicks "birthday concert" segment, which should have revealed something serious was amiss. Good thing mother and daughter don't investigate the mix-up, or we might have only half a movie.

***** A Daughter's Nightmare (5/3/14) Vic Sarin ~ Emily Osment, Victoria Pratt, Paul Johansson, Gregg Sulkin
