Your basic Hand That Rocks the Cradle knock-off. French au pair, employed by wealthy Americans, takes charge of kids, husband, house and car, edging the wife and mother out of the picture and rubbing out anyone in the way. Family friend Garr investigates, helped by sympathetic cop Elizondo and sleazy private eye Smith, leading to a highly uninteresting conclusion. With its boring, high-key TV-movie look, banal script, and comatose performances, it makes Curtis Hanson's creaky Rebecca De Mornay vehicle seem the pinnacle of the genre.
