This suspense film is the tale of a yuppie couple (Matsuda, Cohen) unable to conceive and desperate for a child. They enlist the services of Jennifer (Wilson) to act as surrogate mother. Unbeknownst to the couple, Jennifer has an ulterior motive to this union - to exact revenge for a childhood tragedy which has had a deep, malevolent effect on her. Jennifer moves in with the couple, and during her pregnancy, will allow nothing (or no one) to stop her in her quest for a "final vendetta." Written by Fred Goodridge

Cinema's sexiest psycho

Bridgette Wilson is the only draw for this film. It was fun watching Billy Madison's sweet 3rd Grade teacher portray a demented surrogate mother. She far outshines Rebecca DeMornay in the similar Hand That Rocks the Cradle.

A wealthy young couple, played by Scott Cohen and the talentless Seiko Matsuda(what producer is she related to?), can't have a child of their own, so in enters Bridgette Wilson who becomes their surrogate mother.

Bridgette adds such raw deviant emotion to this role which makes it worthy to see alone. I had no idea she was capable of portraying such a violent evil woman, but she pulls it off brilliantly.

Peter Boyle fans, don't bother, as he wasn't used much. This is basically for Bridgette Wilson fans, who want to see a darker side to Billy Madison's item of lust.
