I think Nancy McKeon was great in this movie. Also, the one scene where Buck nearly stabs Tracy to death and the cops hardly lift a finger to stop him just sickened me. The part that scared me to death more than anything was when he had the baby. To this day, I still thank God that the baby wasn't hurt. If I had gotten the call, I would drop everything and just get over there like a bat out of hell, and I also would've shot that crazy b***ard like the rabid dog he was. The way the cops handled this was a complete atrocity, and if I were the judge in this case, I'd sentence Buck to life in jail and have those cops pay all of Tracy's medical bills. I'm glad Tracy and her son are doing all right today, but what scares me the most is the possibility of Buck getting released, because the first thing he's gonna do is find Tracy and the kid and kill them both. If there's any justice at all, any shred of regard for human life, they won't release him.
