So the teenage daughter can act and has a brain.
The "wrong stepmom" pulls Jekyll and Hyde expressions throughout, both to her credit and detriment.
(It's bad acting, but it's almost funny.)
The father makes me angry. He acts like dryer lint the entire film. He is the epitome of useless.
The little sister beams a forced smile brightly, says her lines, and passively lets whatever is happening take over the scenes around her. So much for free will or a personality.
I thought Pretty LIttle Liars was bad, as far as unrealism, clueless parents; but at least their cast can act.
So if the storyline interests you, it is interesting enough to watch while you do other things.
O yeah: Where is the Law? Apparently you can commit all sorts of crimes in all sorts of places and somehow just move to a new area and no one ever catches you??? Um. If you need realism and loose ends tied, you will be irate. If you just are up for a junk food level Lifetime movie with the evil chick dating a dad of a sharp teenager and how that resolves, this might be "fun" to have on while you bake cookies or search around for affordable in stock hand sanitizer. :)
