Was this another remake ?  Thought so when I read the familiar name. Well it's not. The producers just ripped-off the title from four other previous films. This is number five...

A first indicator that this was going to royally stink was correct. A millennial version of The Hand That Rocks The Cradle- It is not !  Instead we  have an infertile couple who desperately wants a child of their own. They hire a surrogate who begins to obsess over the baby daddy. The rest is predictable, boring and snoring. It's all been done before, over, and over, and over again. Avoid this BIG DOG at all costs. Unwatchable !!
