not that bad
25 November 2001 | by anarchocipherSee all my reviews

okay maybe i'm just up late watching this on insomniac theater but this show isn't that bad. made for tv movies are always edited to hell for commercials and stuff. given that format, they are doing a pretty good movie about women searching for their missing kids. sure, it is partly unrealistic but thats to be expected for made-for-tv budget and other limitations.

it is especially interesting that they dont demonize the husbands or anything. but whatever, this is a serious problem and kids are kidnapped by a parent all the time. no one talks about it for *real* and so i could just imagine how isolated people feel.

this is a touching movie, mildly cheesy, and would probably do good for people who are going through similar experiences. the only thing is that i think there should be more movies about issues like this that primarily impact women.
