Movies that have appeared on these channels.

2 MOVIES THE SEARCH WOULD NOT ADD ARE LISTED BELOW: Unthinkable(Both middle-aged best friends and the young couple[their kids] are severed possibly for good in both cases[the friendship and the young couple] between the McDowells and Shaws as a result of the actions of the young couple).

Hit and Run(Colin--the big mistake that anyone could make in a hurry and yet almost everyone sees Joanna Kendall[Colin] as if she's ebola!) HIT AND RUN GOES BETWEEN 5 AND 6, BECAUSE OF THE MESSAGE AND THE WAY IT MAKES YOU THINK. UNTHINKABLE GOES BETWEEN 14 AND 15 ON THE LIST.

With these extra 2 Movies the list comes to 21. They are added here, because imdb search could not locate them in the system.

Other Notes: 1. Orphan is believable and this could happen in a white child adoption, because of the similarity of many adult and kid features in white people. Plus, many white people have similar voices between childhood and adulthood. Case in point, look at the adults and kids in this movie! Therefore, all you really need to have this happen in real life is a 1. a white dwarf like Esther was and 2. a great liar like Esther was to delay going to the dentist or doctor long enough to implement her plan.

2. Love, Lies, and Murder(That guy was so cold that he could have done what Jim Jones did(Jones had his people punished, manipulated them, and got almost a 1,000 people to commit suicide)! Anyway, Dave Brown had his daughter kill his wife, got her to attempt suicide, molested his sister-in-law from the age of 11 on, married her, and killed[conspiracy] for profit[although he had a great job]).

3. Bitter Blood: Suzy Q is clinically narcissistic; she expects that everyone should dote on her like her rich aunt and agree with her like her parents do for much of the movie. She expects her dentist husband to come chasing when she leaves, but Tom doesn't! This, as is the case when someone is clinically narcissistic, makes her mad enough to kill him from then on! Still, she doesn't have to, since she has their two kids to use as leverage! Enter cousin and lover Fritz and they become extensions of each other: Suzy wanting to do all in her power to keep custody and Fritz is a quack and special ops wannabe. One adventure after another until the explosive end! Pay close attention to the writing at the end.

4. A Woman Scorned: Betty Broderick is probably a hard wife to get along with. Still, nobody that puts you through school, takes care of you to where all you have to do as a lawyer is go to work; come home; use the toilet/take a bath; talk on the phone; sleep; and eat, and takes care of the household and kids expects you to dump them for a much younger woman the first chance you get! He's a big boy; why didn't he say that I don't want your money and time when she was giving before he became a lawyer?! Betty does all these things with them being a family in mind and he is gone with a much younger woman. Betty gets monetary compensation, but she loves him as a wife should love her husband! Divorce is so prevalent in our society today that even when a person loves their spouse as Betty did, it is thought of as she should move on! Betty--after all that she's invested for the investment that she wants--has her husband lessen the return of her investment! Other women take it in this movie, but can you honestly do that if you love them as your vows say?!

5. Too Close to Home - A mother that will do anything for her son Nicky and is obsessed(not romantic as the Kimes) with her son. When I say anything, I mean criminal or otherwise.

Votes: 303

Watch the Lifetime version and not the original; there might be a good bit of sexual content and nude sex scenes in the original. Believable story where a man uses his stud status to swindle married women. Sheridan is one of the women. He's a playa/conman and what's so unbelievable about that?!

Director: Dan Lerner | Stars: Margaret Colin, Lisa Vidal, Drew Pillsbury, Allison Gregory

Joanna Kendall(Colin) makes a mistake that anyone can while driving--having her attention taken away for a moment(in this case on a rainy day) that leads to her hitting a child--but in the high pressure of the moment she has 2 critical decisions to make--move the child, which goes against conventional wisdom for every situation besides this one, or go get help ONLY AND does she fess up and have her family's reputation within the rich, hyper-judgmental community ruined? Mrs. Kendall feels compelled to wait and, as she does, her life becomes miserable and unbearable! A great movie to learn understanding people; also, an invaluable movie for a Christian to watch; although, not in a church setting--since it has a little cussing.

21. Unthinkable (2007 TV Movie)

Overdomineering female police detective Jamie McDowell still tries to run her 19-year old only son Peter's life although he is a builder who lives alone. She strongly opposes his engagement... See full summary »

Kelly breaks off the engagement and a fire breaks out at the Shaw home with Kelly being there alone(killing her). Now, did Kelly set the blaze accidentally while drunk, did Peter set the house on fire being angry for Kelly breaking it off, or was it Kelly's bad boy ex(who is envious of Peter and who Kelly broke it off with)? To add to the matter, the McDowell mother is a cop known for getting results! One of the few movies that take you on an adventure without really knowing it: by the end, it takes what you thought you knew about it and turns it almost upside down!

Based on real events, Paul Bernardo and his wife, Karla Homolka, kidnap, sexually abuse, and murder three young girls.

Karla Homolka(Prepon) loves Paul Bernardo as a god; she even makes a sacrifice to him! She does everything she can to please him! If he asks for something, he may have to manipulate her, then he gets it(EVERY TIME)! Oftentimes, after he has gotten what he wants from her or she doesn't do what he wants how he wants it or when, he makes her look like a complete and utter idiot and/or he gets enraged enough to beat her! It's a movie where Karla's narcissism is tied to Paul's and his narcissism is demonic or satanic! Paul is a SERIAL SADISTIC RAPIST AND KILLER: what is not know is what exactly is the level of her illegal depravity! Karla admits to doing something so horrible that it is truly worse than the rest of the stuff that she denies! Also, read the credits! ANOTHER MOVIE THAT YOU SHOULD WATCH THE LIFETIME VERSION INSTEAD OF THE ORIGINAL.

The Pat and Tom Allanson story. Pat is an authority in crime and deception: both petty and murder. People were only obstacles, life insurance policies, financial opportunities, or bridges to her! She had to have whatever she wanted and preferred that someone else(as Tom and his grandparents) did the supplying, but she could and would get her hands dirty! She was a walking crimewave. IF THERE WAS A PICTURE FOR SIN IN THE DICTIONARY USING PEOPLE(crime and irreverence), THEN PAT ALLANSON'S HEART AND ACTIONS SHOW THAT SHE'D BE IN THE RUNNING WITH ANYONE!
