Storyline

When she talks to the girl's mother she says that she thinks that her daughter's death was not accidental but murder. Later when she shows the apartment to a buyer, she finds the mother there and she says that she was right her daughter was murdered. Lacey and the buyer leave her alone. Later the mother calls Lacey asking her to come over so they can talk. When she gets there she finds the woman dead and the killer is the buyer.

Movie Featuring The Worlds Worst Actors
8 February 2005 | by blonde_ambitionSee all my reviews

As it happens, Pretend You Don't See Her is on the TV right now. However, I had to turn it off and I've come straight on to the IMDb to write this review for it.

Pretend You Don't See her, in the right hands, could have been very good. It's about a woman who is the only witness to a murder, and is then hunted by the killer. In the right hands it could have been good. This was crap though.

It has a very amateur feel to it, and is very obviously a TV movie, a very bad one. The thing that makes it so totally unwatchable? The acting is atrocious. Seriously, it is so bad. Emma Samms, in the lead, is awful, and though at times she is very good, most of the time her line delivery is dreadful.

And I've noticed on a lot of the reviews, people are praising Dani Bouffard's performance, the little girl who played the daughter. Well, reading around, it seems Bouffard has a stage mum, so my only explanation for her good reviews is that maybe her mum got all her friends to say nice things, because in reality, Bouffard's acting is the worst I've ever seen. Child actors are never expected to be that good, but Bouffard is by far the worst. If she wants TV work, she should do commercials were all she's got to do is smile and sat nothing. I mean, who gets shot and smiles as they lay on the ground unconscious? And in the scene that follows her acting is seriously a commercial for how not to act. It is atrocious.

In all, Pretend You Don't See Her is watchable if you aren't put off by things such as the worlds' worst child actor, but if you are the sort of person who notices the bad in movies as well as the good, you will seriously want to steer clear of this one, because they somehow seemed to have rounded up the cream of bad actors, not a single cast member seems to have gone into any depth with their character.

Also, if you are an actor, I beg you not to watch this. You really don't want this sort of acting to rub off on you.
