Katherine "Kathy" is happily married to businessman Greg Norris and lives in his beautiful home with his about 18-year old daughter Tara. When suddenly a charming young man, who Tara first saw lurking around in the garden, turns up on their doorstep claiming he must be Jamie, the baby son she once gave up for adoption as a teenage mother on her parents' orders, the couple is delighted to meet him. They even take him in as they hear his adoptive parents have died in car accident and he's looking for a place to stay during his business studies just like Greg, to pay for which he held various jobs, even in Rio. The only one who remains suspicious is Tara, who doesn't want to be the kid sister and starts looking for holes is Jamie's story, going trough his things and having a friend examine his past- there are, since he didn't tell the Norris family about his lover who helps him unconditionally with his sinister hidden agenda.

The acting was pretty atrocious. Have you ever wondered what makes actors choose to be in movies like this? What was going through SMG's head when she agreed to be in this trash? Money? Trying to break the "good girl" inmage from Buffy? Rent Cruel Intentions for a better movie with SMG as a bad girl.

Joshua B (de) wrote: Produced by Katsu, the star of the Zatoichi film series, and starring his real life brother, This first film establishes the character and tone of the Lone Wolf and Cub series. Faithful to the manga, it has bloody sword fights, and over-the-top villains. Great stuff if you like these types of films.

Only memories of being a kid and hiring this from the local video store, so many times, but I could never put a finger on its name. Finally, thanks to stumbling across a youtube clip...I managed to discover it again and was rapt to take a gander at it as an adult. Stop motion animation is a lot trendier now than it has been of recent times, and this is Rankin/Bass which is probably more famous for its Christmas movies than anything else. Pure unadulterated fun and just coolness. Maybe I am watching it now as an adult through rose coloured lenses, and if you dont have nostalgia on your side, this might be a bore, but I can only go by my experiences and I loved it. So much so, I'm chasing down a copy on DVD on Ebay as I type this.
