I Am Watching You full movie review - Too bad she grew up.
Remember Madeline Zima from HAND THAT ROCKS THE CRADLE and THE NANNY as a wonderful child actress. She was cute then and worked well in her roles.
In some case child actors grow into adult roles quite well and some don't. In this case Zima didn't. She seems stiff and without energy in her acting. It is also hard to accept that the incredible Brian Ames could ever want to be with her at all. This handsome actor goes crazy over her. She starts it all by being a peeping Tom watching his nightly trysts from her window. Then he goes after her, which is hard to believe as she in not a looker for his kind of looks. So she snoops into his life, including breaking into his apartment and at one time when he is in her apartment she accuses him of breaking in. Duh. It just doesn't work in my book. Zima is a nice looking girl but not adult enough to play this kind of a role. And Ames is certainly adult and sexy enough for any role in my book. Too bad.
