A 911 call is placed from a landline cordless phone, the phone number is associated with an stationary address. They know where the house is based on this phone number, the house doesn't move. The cordless phone has a range of maybe 50 ft. But the 911 dispatcher states, we will triangulate on your location, despite Halle knows the address where shes at.

Whoever allowed this movie to be produced should be arrested for mental torture
4 November 2017 | by sheldondesousaSee all my reviews

I have never laughed more at a movie that was intended to be an emotional thriller. I have also never yelled the word "idiot" so often. Halle Berry displayed all the traits of a moron right from the beginning which probably set the tone for most of her actions throughout. We had hope that she'd at least do us all a favor and place the girls on display. It would have guaranteed 2 extra stars. *spoiler* she remained fully clothed.

After the first 30mins of mental torture, we only continued watching in the hope that they would beat her up and poke her with pitchforks. My friends held posters cheering on the bad guys.

I have also never seen anyone look so determined in a car chase at 20-40mph. They should have swapped the minivan for an 18 wheeler to match her facial expressions. I'm convinced grandmothers could drive faster with gunny bags over their heads.

The only way this movie would enter an awards event is if the award for the biggest dumass was up for grabs. Judging by most reviews on here, it's a sure thing.

The part that hurt the most was that we paid to watch this...
