A woman (Jessica) loses her baby due to a car accident, goes crazy, becomes a stalker with an injunction against her to protect her former husband, then befriends Amber (who's beautiful and skinny while 8-1/2 months pregnant--yeah, RIGHT!), the driver who inadvertently killed Jessica's baby 2 years ago.
Jessica (if names mean anything for foreshadowing, "Just sicko" is close enough to Jessica, eh?) goes off the deep end with psychotic jealousy when Amber gets pregnant. She then drugs and forces a doctor at gunpoint (more on this issue later) to induce labor prematurely in Amber, who she also assaulted and drugged, and steals the baby!
Issue 1: She shows up on her ex's doorstep, baby on tow, saying she "fixed the family" with a bright cheery psycho smile, but NO GUN in her waistband as she bends over the baby--which she had stashed there as all TV criminals do-- minutes ago. Then she pulls the (HELLO, ABSENT!) gun out of her waistband and forces the ex into the house. (wow director-- didn't know you invented a magical science fiction teleporting gun for this movie! and forces him inside the house.
WHOA THERE, directors. It would be a good idea to make sure you involve realism in the actions of the psychotic wannabe mother. Like making her a staff member of the hospital instead of a volunteer.
Issue 2: Obviously volunteers have NO access to PRIVATE files of patients--like the new mother's medical file, which psycho-mommy "adjusts" (fakes) to make it look like she's not an expecting mother, but a schizophrenic (issue 3: no psych meds EVER prescribed) who falsely believes she had a baby!
Issue 4: Seriously?? NO hospital staff at the hospital she's visited several times for checkups don't remember her baby?? DUMB.
Issue 5: After Amber is induced (delivered off-camera of course, because the cheap as hell budget wouldn't allow a realistic delivery scene), there is NO blood or fluid or ANY "just gave birth" indications on her bed or the same clothing she WORE before and after labor!
I'm still watching this but you get the idea. Is it worth watching til the end? With my rating of 4/10, it's a toss-up. To slam a mediocre movie and gain the satisfaction of destroying a poor plot by revealing every one of its numerous clichés, continuity errors (most prominently: Gun. Wait, no gun. Wait--she just pulled a gun she DIDN'T have seconds ago) and other flaws...
Let's say this: I've had several beers and there's nothing else that I want to do so... I will watch it.
Maybe I'll even finish this review. Or... maybe it's not worth further effort.
*pop* *pour.... *fizzzzz...
