Better than I thought

I knew this movie was gonna be good when I saw the previews, but it was ten times better than I expected. Enjoyable, well crafted and good overall. Would def watch another like this and would recommend. Had more twists than I expected, but as soon as the movie started I was hooked. I am usually pretty hard to please with movies and like to criticize every little detail but with this one I really have no complaints. Should have gotten more stars and a better rating.

I waited a lot longer than I wanted to, to see the movie. I wanted to see it when it was in theaters but never had the chance. I finally got a chance to watch this movie months later. Wished I would have seen it sooner. I put it off so long that I thought I wasn't going to like it anymore but finally watched it and loved it way more than I ever thought I was going to.

A fresh take on the Fatal Attraction plot.

While I can be honest and say this is not an A+ movie, I definitely don't think it is bad either. If you saw the previews, you know exactly what you were in for. Because of that, I think the movie was pretty good.

I think I enjoyed the movie so much because of the actors. I adore Morris Chestnut & Regina Hall, even if their acting was just slightly better than everyone's else and that's not saying much. The problem, however, is that this scenario is a little tired at this point. It reminded me the whole time of Obsessed with Idris Elba, Beyonce & Ali Larter. Only, when I saw Obsessed, being in my early 20's, it was the first I had seen of this type of movie, so to this day I love it and actually want to watch it now after seeing this one. I personally prefer Obsessed because it's just a bit more fun, I'll take Beyonce as the sassy, bad-ass housewife over Regina's demure, almost helpless career woman any day.

Ugh and that whole husband hiding the other woman's advances from his wife because he can "handle it" narrative is so stupid I don't see why it's keeps being used. What would have made a more interesting movie, he tells Regina the minute it starts happening, the two of them continue to play along and eventually turn the tables on the surrogate. That would have made it a great movie.

All in all it was a beautiful movie, the settings and imagery were nice. Not to mention the actors, especially the surrogate were hot! I'm a woman and came for Morris but the surrogate was so sexy, even while pregnant. She was the only thing that kept me interested. Not great enough to buy but definitely good enough to rent and watch at home. Unless you've seen this scenario one too many times, then I wouldn't recommend it. Like I said though, if you've seen the trailer, you already know what's going to happen. If you watch and expect anything else, you will be disappointed but that is not the movies' fault.

A Good Movie

This movie is, I believe, a remake of "The Hand That Rocks the Cradle" from 1992. At least, a similar set of elements comes up in both movies, this time with a black cast rather than white. One way or another, it was a good movie, full of suspenseful points, and the acting was good. I liked it.

John and Laura Taylor cannot conceive a child, despite having made all efforts, and have resorted to hiring a surrogate mother, who is sweet (and seriously cute) and generally easy to like and love, a girl named Anna Walsh. But Anna isn't all she seems to be, living an unstable life and hiding her own deep and dark secrets as she develops inappropriate feelings for John, and her obsession with him turns dangerous and violent. What happens next? Buy a ticket and see the movie. LOL
