This actually started out as a decent thriller. But then it devolved into the typical Lifetime formulaic type of movie. I mean, c'mon, a room full of pictures of the bad guy's obsession? Really? Again? And we have the usual one naive character that doesn't see the problems right in front of them, and sticks around long past the time any normal person would have bolted. Then we have the quick ending, right after the last commercial, with a girl fight (really? Again?), and an aftermath that defied all logic. All straight from the Lifetime list of plot points that all their movies seem to require to be picked from.
Too bad. I actually though we had something unique here for Lifetime. For about half an hour. But then the writing fell apart quickly.
4 stars only for the somewhat unique beginning.
The Captive Nanny
The Captive Nanny
Chloe (Karynn Moore) is a nanny who desperately wants to adopt but needs to get her life together first. She finds the perfect live-in nanny position with the Brown family - Emily (Austin Highsmith), Michael (Michael Aaron Milligan) and their son - that will help get her life back on track. She quickly learns they're oddly strict about security, with coded locks on all doors. Emily explains it's due to her famous musician ex named Baz (Jason Skeen), who stalks her. Horrified, Chloe agrees to help Emily and Michael keep their son safe. But when Chloe notices things seem a bit off with the Browns, Emily and Michael turn on Chloe and accuse her of being a spy for Baz. They lock her up to force a false confession out of her, but Chloe soon learns that it's not Baz that's making bad things happen - it's Emily, who is determined to win back Baz by any means necessary.
