I enjoyed the fact that this movie was based on a true story. I felt the quality of the movie was good, however, the acting by the mother was terrible in my opinion. Not once did she shed a tear and most often through the movie she seemed annoyed to me. Therefore, I feel her part could have been done much better. Dean Cain did an excellent job though and I did enjoy the movie overall.
We liked that the real parents were included in the whole process of this film. Even though the way the boy got lost seems strange, it was believable because the actual people were consulted (and in the film itself). Good for the lawkeepers in allowing the neighbors to get involved! And good for the neighbors in doing so.
