LMN Lineup 4/25/2011
Here are the top 3 movies each day on Lifetime Movie Network I’m looking forward to for the week beginning April 25th.
The Last Trimester -4 PM EST
A couple (Chandra West, Jim Thorburn) tries to adopt a baby, but the mother who wants to blackmail them ends up dead.
WML’s Take – Adopting a baby and blackmail, great way to start off my week.
Mother May I Sleep With Danger? – 6 PM EST
A woman (Lisa Banes) eventually deduces that her teenage daughter’s (Tori Spelling) boyfriend (Ivan Sergei) is a psychopath who has already killed once.
WML’s Take – I sure hope Ivan Sergei’s name isn’t Danger since he may have to then sleep with Tori Spelling.
Maternal Obsession – 8 PM EST
A desperate counselor wants the baby of a pregnant high-school senior.
WML’s Take – Another movie with obsession somehow worked in the title and a desperate counselor, this is a can’t miss.
The Stepson – 10 AM EST
After the death of her husband, a grieving woman must deal with her estranged and troubled son.
WML’s Take – Tough to go wrong when “son” is in the title – The Bad Son, The Good Son, The Fat Son…
Her Married Lover – 2 PM EST
Unmarried film editor Katie Griffin (Roxana Zal) meets married suspense writer Richard Mannhart (Perry King) when he saves her during a convenience store robbery. During the confusion, they exchange an erotically charged moment that leads to a rapturous affair. Mannhart promises to leave his wife, Laura (Susan Blakely), but procrastinates right up to the moment that his wife’s car is involved in a suspicious accident. When the adulterous couple is accused of murder, they turn on each other.
WML’s Take – Great title here.
A Killer Among Friends – 6 PM EST
A slain teen’s mother (Patty Duke) reaches out to a girl (Margaret Welsh) who knew but also helped kill her daughter.
WML’s Take – I’m not passing up a chance to see a mother hang out with the woman who killed her daughter.
Come Early Morning – Noon EST
Lucy (Ashley Judd) works as an Arkansas construction contractor during the day, but nighttime is set aside for boozing and a series of one-night stands. When newcomer Cal (Jeffrey Donovan) arrives in town, Lucy must decide whether to have a serious relationship or continue down a path of wild behavior.
WML’s Take – Three words “come” “ashley” and “judd”
To Gillian on Her 37th Birthday – 4 PM EST
A young widower (Peter Gallagher) alienates his teen daughter (Claire Danes) by refusing to let his wife go.
WML’s Take – Title sounds better than the movie.
Marry Me – 8 PM EST
Two best friends fall in love with the same woman, then her ex-boyfriend returns to further complicate matters.
WML’s Take – Terrible title, but sounds like a solid flick with a bizarre love triangle.
Ring of Deceit – 2 PM EST
An art expert suspects foul play while investigating a mysterious antique ring.
WML’s Take – The ring can be multiple things here… ring of people you can’t trust… or the physical ring, I must watch to find out.
Hidden Crimes – 4 PM EST
A woman must locate $20 million to pay the ransom for her kidnapped nephew.
WML’s Take – I have a lot of nephews, so I can potentially relate to this.
No Brother of Mine – 6 PM EST
A woman (Kellie Martin) encounters her troubled sibling while visiting her dying grandmother across the country.
WML’s Take – Whenever a movie title can be said to you, you need to watch it, in this case, I fit the criteria.
Listen to Your Heart – 2 PM EST
A songwriter falls in love with a girl who cannot hear the music he writes for her.
WML’s Take – The only way this movie can sound any cheesier is if it takes place in Wisconsin.
Nora Roberts’ High Noon – 6 PM EST
A psychopathic killer (Ivan Sergei) targets a hostage negotiator (Emilie de Ravin) who takes care of for her daughter and mother (Cybill Shepherd).
WML’s Take – Ivan Sergei siting! I’m not a big fan of movies with a name in front of them, but this is a hostage negotiation.
WML’s Take – I can’t NOT vote “The Stranger Beside Me” and you would too if you knew it was good for you!
Wall of Secrets – 10 AM EST
An architect’s wife finds her perception of reality twisted after her neighbor dies under mysterious circumstances.
WML’s Take – Another movie with “secrets” and “wall” in the title, can’t be worse than this one.
Perfect Wife – 2 PM EST
After trying to save a man from a car crash, a doctor marries the victim’s distraught, vengeful sister.
WML’s Take – Pffft, a perfect wife? Didn’t know they existed.
The Perfect Marriage – 6 PM EST
A beautiful but devious woman (Jamie Luner) plots to murder her husband to inherit a fortune.
WML’s Take – Two movies with perfect in the title in the same day = perfect way to spend a Saturday.
Invisible Child – 2 PM EST
A nanny alerts authorities to a family that hired her to care for a woman’s imaginary daughter.
WML’s Take – Oh come on now, is LMN even trying with this one?
My Daughter’s Secret – 6 PM EST
After her jewelry store is robbed, a single mother (Jennifer Grant) notices her daughter’s (Nina Dobrev) strange behavior.
WML’s Take – If this one doesn’t end with a pregnant daughter or daughter with a penis, I’m going to be very disappointed.
Akeelah and the Bee – 8 PM EST
Akeelah, an 11-year-old girl living in South Los Angeles, discovers she has a talent for spelling, which she hopes will take her to the National Spelling Bee. Despite her mother’s objections, Akeelah doesn’t give up on her goal. She finds help in the form of a mysterious teacher, and along with overwhelming support from her community, Akeelah might just have what it takes to make her dream come true.
WML’s Take – “Akeelah… Can I get that used in a sentence please?” “Akeelah… Can I get the origin of the word?”
