A Prescription for Trouble...
27 March 2004 | by vertigo_14See all my reviews

This is a funny little made-for-tv movie about how the suburban life can get to you. Marcia (Garr) and her husband (Urich) just moved to a new housing development in California and promised themselves (made to look like stereotypical radicals) they would not succumb to the rituals of lawn mowing and fence-talking. But, when Marcia's new baby monitor starts picking up conversations between a mysterious "Don" and "Judy" leading to a murder plot, she becomes the towns new detective. However, as the conversations between "Don" and "Judy" become more frequent, and the plot starts to thicken, we come to doubt the seriousness of the events, it seems more like a soap drama than a reality. And likewise, as Marcia, careful not to let on what she suspects of her neighbors, she unwittingly causes other gossip and secrets to unfold about the residents of the small suburban housing development.

It's got some good moments, particularly between Marcia and the Detectice (Rocco) to which she constantly reports her skeptical findings, although the story does tend to get a little too ridiculous (though that is the point--afterall it is in a way making fun of soap opera like happenings). Anyways, I particularly recommend it if you like Terri Garr (as she is in her usual "Garr" style here). It's like "Rear Window" gone overboard.
