Waste of time
11 May 2015 | by liamforemanSee all my reviews

Oh my god, what a waste of time! I actually got through it, just because I'm stubborn.

It's about this separated Mom who is feeling threatened. Helen Slater is not at her acting best here. And Heather Lind, who plays her daughter is probably the worst and most annoying child actress I've ever had the displeasure to see.

Alan Thicke plays her baddie husband. He's the only good thing about this movie. He throws F bombs as well as Troy Aikman threw footballs.

The rest of cast was interesting. Harvey Korman from the Carol Burnett Show, David Lander who played Squiggy on Laverne and Shirley, Kelly LeBrock from Weird Science, and Billy Zane.

Anyway, back to the plot. Helen SLater is separated and has tonsillitis. She meets her surgeon Billy Zane and proceeds to start an affair with him. I'm sure the medical board would not approve. Well, one thing leads to another, Slater has visions of a crow, and blah blah blah.

The most appropriate way to end this movie was in the last minute my emergency warning came on to warn about flash floods and when it came back to the film it was playing the credits. So I have no idea how it ended. But frankly I didn't care.

I'd pass on this. It was stupid. The only reason I gave it a 2 was because I thought Alan Thicke was sexy and I loved his F bombs. No more Mr. Seaver there!!
