The Deep End of the Ocean
1999
**
Director: Ulu Grosbard
Cast: Michelle Pfeiffer, Treat Williams, Whoopi Goldberg, Jonathan Jackson

An appalling tearjerker about a couple whose son is kidnapped, only to turn up on their doorstep nine years later. Stories this cheesy are usually reserved for TV movies of the week. Decent actors (Michelle Pfeiffer, Treat Williams) are completely wasted. Adapted from Jacquelyn Mitchard’s novel.
