WHEN THE BOUGH BREAKS (356 hits)

https://youtu.be/ESvqjimH5wA
MOVIE REVIEW

​1.5* out of ****

Starring Morris Chestnut, Regina Hall, Jaz Sinclair, and Michael K. Williams, star in this urban/domestic thriller in which John and Laura Taylor (Chestnut and Hall) have difficulty conceiving a child. In a last ditch effort, they decide to use a surrogate. Demure in the beginning and in cahoots with her rather slimy boyfriend Mike (Theo Rossi), Anna (Sinclair) hatches a plan to take the baby, her fee, and split. However, it seems that Anna develops a love jones for John.
 
That's the basic storyline and despite the excellent photography of New Orleans and the good looking cast, the movie is off the rails with some of its logic. If certain characters acted with the intelligence based upon their upscale occupations, the film abruptly ends. (More thorough investigations, follow your first instincts, call the police, RUN! I digress.)

Based upon the opening weekend box office numbers, When the Bough Breaks doesn't appear it will top its predecessors Obsessed, No Good Deed, and The Perfect Guy. Is the African-American market tired of the urban/domestic/stalker/thriller or is When the Bough Breaks just a Labor Day/annual/autumn/miscalculation? We wait for 2017. I hope they can do it better than ...Bough. Or how about a little tweak to the genre/subject matter for a change of pace? Look me up, Hollywood.
