Product Description

David Duchovny stars in this drama based on the true story of Bianca Hudson, a desperate woman who abducts a new-born baby. Faking a pregnancy and then passing the stolen baby off as her own, Bianca leaves the mother of the kidnapped baby - Karen Williams - with the task of explaining her child's disappearence. If Karen can't convince the public and the FBI that her baby has been stolen then she risks being condemned as a child-killer, so she takes matters into her own hands and sets out to find her baby herself.

4.0 out of 5 stars In all fairness ~ ~ 30 July 2002
By Dalon
Format:DVD
The story is interesting owed mainly to the 'based on a true story' of baby snatching. However, this movie is about the tenacity and drive of the biological mother and the pitiful woman who successfully plots and then snatches her child. In all fairness to David Duchovny, this is not his flick. His character is shallowly written; barely more than a genetics materials donor for the mother of the child. His character is hardly necessary to the story at all. He's mostly grist for the animosity of the grandmother towards the seemingly financially healthier boyfriend who struggles with infidelity to his comfortable life and wife, just how much he really cares for the mother of the child they share which has been stolen. He appears to decide to stand with the mother but by the time this is shown the mother's developed more internal strength and doesn't seem to even need him any longer. There is no final resolution shown nor information shared if he stays with her and their child or moves on. A Duchovny fan would want this as part of their collection reflecting his pre-X-Files outing.

Great 'made for tv' movie about a woman who lives with a police chief (Michael Madsen) who is about to leave her. To stop him from leaving she claims to be pregnant. As time progresses the viewer finds that she is faking the pregnancy but as time goes on, and the baby is 'due' she takes a drastic step. Posing as a potential babysitter she kidnaps a fairly newborn baby from another family. The police then seem more interested in trying to place the blame for the missing baby on its parents (specifically on David Duchovny's character as he is already married to another woman) rather than trying to locate the baby itself.

This movie certainly is acted well from nearly everybody, but despite being the cover star (due to the fact he appears in X-Files about a year later) Duchovny is wooden and monotone throughout. The two female leads are great though, and I did find humour in the fact that the (stolen) baby cries anytime Michael Madsen looks at it - this is about the time of Reservoir Dogs after all. Based on a true story you certainly feel sorrow and anger for the birth mother and can also feel sympathy for the 'baby snatcher' too.

Definitely worth a viewing

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Different 16 Jan 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Two pregnant women miles apart but only one is really pregnant. A single mum and a married woman both have totally different reasons for having a baby. One has got to work and support her family while the other wants to keep her husband by lying about been a mum to be. It take all sorts but I found this movie quite good considering a low budget film yet holds your interest throughout the show. The feeling of losing your baby, stolen from you and than been accused by the police for everything unspeakable trying to put the blame on you and your partner. The story is fantastic with the actors doing their parts very convincing, as to make you aware what is happening around them. I rated this an A grade for the entertainment being fabulous and something different for a change. So take a spell and rest with your feet up to a wonderful show that will make you sit up and notice, don't forget the popcorn. Enjoy!

3.0 out of 5 stars Rent don't buy 1 Jan 2002
Format:DVD
A mediocre story with slightly more impressive acting. It stars David Duchovny before he shot to fame in the X Files, while I m normally a fan of his I was left disappointed by his performance in this movie. While watchable on a sunday afternoon I wouldn't reccommend it for multiple viewings.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good story line 30 Dec 2010
By xfiles1986 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I must admit, I got this movie with all the intentions of watching David Duchovny, it turns out to have a fairly good story line...

DD looks so much younger in this movie, being a family man yet having an affair as well as gotten her pregnant. The lady, who lost her baby in an accident, stole the baby as soon as he/she was born. In a way you can see how green DD's acting is in this movie, and how much his acting skills has developed today.
It's a must watch for DD fans, he is soooooo handsome in it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much Cheaper Version Available on Amazon!!!!!!!!! 21 Feb 2011
By X-Filegirl - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
DO NOT BUY the single DVD version of this movie!!!!!! "Baby Snatcher", a must-have for any David Duchovny fan, is a made-for-tv movie that was originally released on DVD for around $5. Once it went "out of print" many sellers hiked up the price for a new copy. However, what most people don't know is that this movie is available in a DVD set called "Love, Loss and Affliction", which contains "Baby Snatcher" and 11 other movies. Prices for a new copy at amazon start at under $5. Why would you pay $30+ for this movie when you can get "Baby Snatcher" and 11 other movies for under $5? The "Baby Snatcher" single DVD sellers are hoping you are too dumb to find out about this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Someone took my baby 18 Sep 2008
By Roberta Hotard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Karen Williams (Nancy Mckeon) stars in this made for tv movie about a young single mother goes back to work part time and learned her newborn daughter Sophie was kidnapped. Bianca (Veronica Hammel) stars and the captains wife who becomes desperate to keep her husband , tricking him into believing she is pregnant and going to give birth to a baby girl. Little did he know, she is the kidnapper to baby Sophie. This movie keeps you on the edge of your seat. The thought of someone taking someones child is so heartbreaking. Great movie.
5.0 out of 5 stars As Good As I Remember 19 Oct 2008
By Boidiva02 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This TV Movie classic from the 1990's is as good as i recall it being. In 1992 Karen Williams a recent widower gives birth to a daughter with her boyfriend, the married David and they are both stunned when an nanny being interviewed kidnaps the child and is nowhere to be foun. Karen and David become the suspects of the FBI in the case and Karen sets out to prove that she DID NOT kill her child. Nancy McKeon in a post-Facts Of Life role is sensational as Karen and Veronica Hamel is also sensational as Bianca Hudson the deranged psychopath that kidnaps Karen's baby. Michael Madsen, brother of Virginia Madsen is great as Bianca's cold husband whose rejection sends her off the edge of sanity.

Great movie filled with tissue worthy moments.

I am very impressed with how fast I received my purchase. Thank you. Me and my daughter was watching this movie when the electricity went out. We were so upset. I immediately got on the internet and looked to see who carried the movie. You were the cheapest. Thank you again.
