MOTHER` S DAY (2009 US.) D: DARREN LYNN BOUSMAN W: SCOTT MILAM P: BRETT RATNER/RICHARD SAPERSTEIN/JAY STERN/BRIAN WITTEN
A trio of crooks (one seriously wounded) go to hole up in their family home, only to find it`s been bought by a young couple, who are busy having a dinner party. A sadistic hostage situation takes place, with matriach Rebecca de Mornay soon calling the shots. Officialy a remake of the 1980 picture of the same name (both Charles and Lloyd Kaufman were Executive Producers), this felt more like a re-tread of THE HOUSE ON THE EDGE OF THE PARK to me. And nowhere near as good either. Not to mention way too long at 112 mins. With Jaime King, Frank Grillo, Patrick John Flueger, Deborah Ann Wolf, Shawn Ashmore and Matt O`Leary. Bousman helmed some SAW sequels.
