Nanny No No

Wes Brown and Austin Highsmith in Missing Daughter (2017) (aka: Nanny Seduction)

After Ben (Wes Brown - Christmas Cookies) had an affair his wife, Kara (Austin Highsmith), is struggling to trust him as he is always working late but she does her best as six months ago they adopted 8 year old Riley (Lauren Gobuzzi) whose real mother, Vanessa (Erin Cahill - Sleigh Bells Ring), was an alcoholic. When their existing nanny, Mrs. Gregory (Sharon Garrison), has to move Kara finds herself struggling to find a replacement as the first is inexperienced and the second is trouble for Ben. What Ben and Kara don't know is that someone is not just watching their home but also sneaking around it. And then Riley disappears...

Movies about nannies are quite frequent in the world of made for TV movies with some nanny's who seduce husbands to others who abduct young children. So how do you make another made for TV movie featuring a nanny more entertaining? Well in the case of "Missing Daughter", which is also known as "Nanny Seduction" it simply combines every nanny movie idea ever thought of. So yes that means we have a nanny who tries to seduce a daddy but also a storyline which sees a child being abducted.

Erin Cahill in Missing Daughter (2017) (aka: Nanny Seduction)

But "Missing Child" layers these two story ideas with other ideas, although some might call them more cliches. So we have trust issues over a husband who has an affair. We also have the child's real mother pretty much stalking Ben and Kara. None of this is in anyways new it is simply different to have it all slammed together in to one movie. Unfortunately it doesn't make "Missing Child" any better and this is one of those movies where the characters frequently do stupid things which push this towards being an entertaining groan movie.

What this all boils down to is that "Missing Child" is a TV movie which simply combines various ideas from the nanny movie genre. It doesn't make it less predictable but it does make it strangely entertaining even when much of it is kind of groan worthy.
