21 October 2004 | by Pro JurySee all my reviews

First, let us try to say some nice things about SAVING EMILY. Annie Bovaird is fine as the cute kid in the title role. Bruce Boxleitner is OK as the concerned male head of household. Keara Johnston is eye catching in her first supporting part. Michael Riley pulls no punches playing the psycho/weirdo ex-hubby. And... OK, that is about all there is.

SAVING EMILY is laughably bad. Very bad. Several questions beg to be asked: Why would Mr. Big ever trust the psycho with $600,000 in the first place? Why would Mr. Big ever bother to physically go to a murder scene? If Emily needs to be saved, then why in the world was Uncle Theo not tested to see if he would be a match?! How could the writer have Emily's mother say about the psycho ex-husband, "this time, I trust him" -- two, three, four times -- and not expect the viewers to laugh?

Saving Emily is pretty hopeless.
