Excellent movie
15 October 2005 | by tellis238See all my reviews

I just watched this movie for the first time. I have to say Kimberly McCullough was very convincing. I think she did a fabulous job. I agree the writing may not have been the best, but she did a great job with it.

I loved seeing Rick Springfield in this movie. He was a typical father believing everything his daughter says. Not wanting to admit there was a problem.

I think the mother's reaction was right on target. It is usually the mother who sees the problem first.

I would definitely recommend this movie.
