You may ask - "What sets this apart from any of the other things I can find on Lifetime at any minute?"
This horrifyingly bad decision signifies that Mom has some mental instability. Not that the movie caught on.
This movie stops at nothing to show us this family is so incredibly close to domestic perfection. So close. As long as no one's talking, then perfection is achieved
And as this movie cannot stress enough - MOM IS HANGING BY A MENTAL THREAD.
It was mentioned that due to the Babysitter's positive influence, Tara is not watching as much television and is no longer afraid of the outdoors.
HANGING BY A THREAD.
"Do you mind if I take your car and go to a movie?"
The tension in this film is through the roof.
Which he does....
No one plays it more mild than Shatner. They don't call it Shatnering for nothing.
Know where it got him?
His only crime was loving too much. By loving I mean, sort of hitting on the Babysitter during a casual boat ride and saying, "Hey, can I see you later?"
William Shatner stays bland at all costs.
"You take me to your parties, and if I want to drink, I'll drink! Because you love your job too much!"
"Shut up about my job! She loves me in more ways than you'll ever understand!"
"Hey Mom - I think the babysitter is doing a lousy job of taking care of the house. Should we fire her? Plus, why are you drinking at 9am in your slip?"
"Hello? Am I alone in here?"
Poor Tara. She's one more traumatic incident short of becoming her own manipulative babysitter.
On second thought, this is TV. She'll get out and prey on a TV family, hopefully starring Heather Locklear.
My Netflix adventures are on Facebook, so take a moment to "Like" it or whatever it is the kids do there. Also you can find me on Twitter - I talk about food there too.
