Inconceivable? Meh, not really
2 August 2020 | by nikethaddeusSee all my reviews

The movie is draggy and the storyline has been recycled too often. If not for curiosity, I might not have completed it.

That not withstanding, it is a good thing to keep the kinds of story around for those that might have missed previous versions and really need to be educated about these kinds of circumstances. However, kindly make it more interesting to watch and not a movie we have to endure through most part of it.

Long story short, it is never advisable to be too trusting of a total stranger no matter how much cuteness they have going on for them. When you allow strangers have too much access into your family, whatever terrible outcome you get is not inconceivable in my own opinion.

It is true we can never be too careful and it's good to love our neighbours as ourselves etc. but self preservation should always be a priority from the get go. This was one of the major things Angela (Gina Gershon) took for granted. By the time she started to grasp the depth of Katie's (Nicky Whelan) deceit, it was almost too late for her to be believed because then she looked like she was the one with a problem.

P.S. What was up with the hairstyle for Gina Gershon though... It could have been neater and they could have made her look better not like she was just going into every scene like she was straight out of bed.
