Grace (2009)... Nothing saves this Grace
Grace: 4 out of 10: If you create a shark attack movie at some point, you will need a shark attack. You can throw in tons of satire about progressive attitudes, over-bearing mother in laws, and maternal instincts. However, when all is said and done the shark has to show up.
Grace is slow to start and never speeds up. The film ends a few scenes before it starts getting good. As a genre film, it is a sleepy disaster. As a political independent film it is simply okay.
Grace has good acting, the world’s cutest black cat, and some biting social commentary.
What it lacks is a killer baby.
Stick with It’s Alive, which does all of the above (sans the cute cat) and yet delivers the goods at the end.
