Would You Like Some Bree with That
Laura (Jade Harlow - Stalked by My Patient) was just 17 when she gave birth to her first daughter, but she wasn't even allowed to hold her as her parents insisted on the baby being taken away immediately and put up for adoption. Now 20 years later and Laura is now happily married to Michael (Rusty Joiner - Last Ounce of Courage) and they have a teenage daughter, Skylar (Brianna Gage). But out of the blue Laura's adopted daughter, Bree, shows up at their home having been able to track her down through an organization and hopes to get to know her mum. But after an awkward but good start Laura begins to suspect Bree is not as nice as she makes about to be and is in fact a danger to anyone who crosses her.
Depending on your knowledge of Lifetime movies "A Daughter's Deception" will either surprise you or make you think of another recent Lifetime movie. As such for the most what seems to be going on in "A Daughter's Deception" is your typical long lost daughter shows up and behind the smiles is a psycho who will threaten, hurt and kill anyone who upsets her. As such we see Bree threaten a school bully who is making life tough for Skylar, we see her kill someone who discovers the truth and... well basically we have all the usual stuff from this sort of long lost psycho daughter movie. But if you know your Lifetime movies then your train of thought might lead you down a certain path and you are probably not going to be surprised by the movie's twist when it comes to Bree.
Whilst the storyline might not stay with you after watching there is something about "A Daughter's Deception" which is going to stick out, and I don't just mean some of the bad dialogue as this movie has a little too much of that. Nope this is definitely a movie with beautiful people from Jade Harlow and Kennedy Tucker through to Rusty Joiner with his super toned arms and shoulders. Even a couple of detectives, almost a comedy double act, also happen to be better looking than your usual Lifetime movie detectives. The combination of the bad dialogue and the attractive nature of the cast give this an air of being false.
What this all boils down to is that "A Daughter's Deception" is a case of typical Lifetime movie with a twist which many fans of these movies will already know It is an okay movie but nothing special and actually suffers due to have too many good looking people in it as it comes across as being more fake than these movies normally do.
