Goofs

Cut brakes lines combined with the amount of fluid shown would result in a complete brake failure before the car left the parking garage. Additionally, the brake pedal did not go to the floor, indicating the brakes still worked. See more »

Typical of Lifetime
21 April 2009 | by See all my reviews

At the start of the movie, a house explodes. Outside in a car, someone watches, covered like a Middle Eastern woman in a burqa.

More than 20 years later, Nina is married to Stuart, a Chicago doctor. She runs a medical publishing business with her friend Karen, and she has two children, April and Brandon. Isabelle takes care of the children. Stuart is cheating on Nina with Miriam, a beautiful doctor who calls Nina "The Ice Queen".

Nina finds out from Mary that her grandmother in Buffalo is sick. Nina suspects her brother Drew is with Mary and claims she will not come. But Nina does visit her grandmother, claiming to her family that she is traveling to New York on business; she even brings the kids souvenirs.

Drew is quite charming and a good liar, and when that isn't enough, he threatens violence. If he has to in order to reach his goals, he will even kill.

When Drew shows up in Chicago, Stuart is happy to see him, though somewhat confused as to why Nina would deny having a brother. The kids like him too, and he likes them. The fact is that Nina (known to those in her past life as Marcia) has moved many times to keep her brother from finding her. And now that Drew has found her, Nina hires private detective George Friezen to find out about him and her college boyfriend Brent.

What is so terrible about Nina's past that she will go to this much trouble? Why is Drew such a threat to her?

There's nothing that special about his movie. I've always like Kellie Martin, but she doesn't really seem like herself here. I suppose Adam MacDonald gives the standout performance as Drew. I liked the car rental agent, whatever her name was. And Karen.

There is some violence, but nothing really explicit. For those who enjoy this sort of thing, a beautiful woman exits the shower, sees her man and drops her towel, and then a camera moves slowly from her feet at the end of the bed past the sheet that covers only what broadcast TV requires until finally reaching her head. Despite the kids and the kid-friendly movie they watch, this movie is not for children.

I enjoyed it enough.
