My Neighbor’s Keeper- We’ve Seen This All Before **1/2
2 couples who knew each other from college days and lived across the street from each other in suburbia are traumatized when on Halloween night, one of the wives is killed. She is the one with the adorable two children. Right away we feel that something is funny because the other friend is childless and is desperate to have children.
We have some real look like others in this film. The widower looks just like John Edwards and a judge at an inquest resembles Bill Clinton.
Other than this, the story is too routine because we soon start to see the evidence mount up on the dead woman’s husband. This guy was not such a great fellow apparently as the film goes on. We never meet his lady love who it is claimed has no interest in being a mother to his children.
Naturally, the childless friend becomes very attached to the two children despite being warned not to do so by her husband.
I was looking for conspiracy here. That would have made the film better. Otherwise, it’s quite routine.
Kate Powell served as godmother to little Ellie, the daughter of her neighbors, Annie and Mike Harding. But when Annie is murdered on the night of Halloween, it appears that Kate may have the opportunity to play major role in caring for Ellie and baby Logan. Because Kate is infertile and as she was the person to discover Annie’s body, Kate is a suspect in the murder case.
The filmmakers were successful in toggling between Kate and Annie’s husband Mike as the culprit. But the angelic nature of Kate allows the viewer to recognize that she would never harm the mother of those two beautiful children.
An especially intriguing character was Tim Powell, the attorney husband of Kate, who is often insensitive to his wife. Tim uses his lawyerly logic to urge his wife not to get too attached to the kids because legally they must remain under the care of Mike and the children’s grandparents. But Tim slowly comes around to looking at what would be in the best interest of the kids and viewing the situation from the perspective of his wife.
There is a salient moment in the film when Mike asks Tim if he would like to purchase a sailboat with him. The request oddly comes immediately after the funeral of Annie. Was Mike attempting to move on with his life in thinking about the boat? Or, was his desire to purchase the boat an example of the crass materialism at the heart of Mike at a time when he should have been in bereavement?
The actress playing Kate was especially adept in handling baby Logan with loving care and in showing genuine concern about little Ellie. That devotion was the essence of her character. The love and sensitivity of the Godmother was the heart and soul of this film.
