Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Perhaps you were wondering if it were still possible to wring any suspense out of an unbalanced-third-wheel plot. "When the Bough Breaks," about a surrogate pregnancy gone horribly wrong, has a definitive answer: No, it isn't.
Rotten: "When the Bough Breaks" comes across as a Lifetime cable movie that got lucky and won a lottery offering theatrical release as first prize.
Rotten: Writer Jack Olsen's glossy script goes light on logic, credibility and mining some of the story's deeper ramifications, as it works its way toward the inevitable, largely predictable final showdown.
Rotten: A lazily written and generically directed Fatal Attraction knockoff.
