Beth (Pfeiffer) and husband Pat (Williams) live the ideal life in the suburbs, with a nice home and three beautiful kids. All of that is shattered when three-year-old Ben is abducted while Beth is distracted at a hotel. Shows the tortuous road of depression that Beth travels, and the effect it has on her family. Suddenly, nine years later Ben shows up at her doorstep, now named Sam, and offers to cut the lawn. Beth and detective Candy (Goldberg) determine that he is the lost boy, and painful choices must be made by all. Glosses over the story behind the child's abduction and wraps everything up a bit too easily.

The Deep End of the Ocean
Star_onStar_onStar_onStar_on 3.0 4.0

The Deep End of the Ocean is such a good movie. It's very touching. I tear up every time I watch this movie. Michelle Pfieffer, Treat Williams, Ryan Merriman, and Whoopi Goldberg start in this great movie. The Deep End of the Ocean is about a three year old boy who gets stolen from his family. Nine years later he shows up to his family, not knowing it's his family. He was just coming to cut their lawn. Now he's back with his family. It makes you happy that they found their son. It's a great movie. Sad in some parts, but happy in other parts.
