Suspense? Twists? Where???
12 November 1998 | by nirvana7-2See all my reviews

If you haven't seen something resembling the twist in this movie in other movies, you haven't seen enough movies!! The conflict in the family was very exaggerated & doesn't really add to the believability of the story. The best part of the movie was Alyssa Milano & Ice T who both put in respectable performances. The question is, when will Alyssa Milano be given a chance at a good movie role, she's got the talent, but so far the movies she's been in have been sub par.
