5.0 out of 5 stars De Mornay's finest film ever! March 15, 2000
Who would've thought that The Hand That Rocks The Cradle would've become so popular ever since its 1992 release? After being broadcast on the networks many times and finally put on cable, the viewers ratings show that this thriller is one that manages to gain more popularity with each showing. Starring Rebecca De Mornay as the estranged wife of an obstitrician accused of sexual molestation, she seeks out the woman who brought up the charges (Annabella Sciorra) after her husband kills himself. De Mornay's character, Peyton Flanders, worms her way into Annie's home, posing as a nanny in order to make Sciorra's family her own. The suspense builds to sometimes frightening heights as Peyton begins to destroy Annie's life, misplacing papers and making things not what they seem. The climax is one of the best suspense endings I've seen in my life, and the acting from each person in this film is amazing and truly believable. Unlike so many other movies, this one is not anticlimactic, and flows very steadily from start to finish. A must-see for an De Mornay fan as well as followers of the suspense genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars A little revenge never hurts, right? July 14, 2008
The Hand That Rocks the Cradle is one creepy film but I enjoyed it. Rebecca de Mornay plays a manipulative and revenge-seeking nanny. I am kinda surprised this thriller is directed by Curtis Hanson, doesn't seem like his type of movie. I won't give away too much but De Mornay's character has been through a tragedy and she will stop at nothing to seek solace even if it means driving a happily married couple insane. I highly recommend this cat and mouse game, enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars An entertaining time February 14, 2004
The plot is a bit predictable. You'll probably guess most of the plot twists before they come. The demented nanny. The saintly, stuttering black handyman whom she has fired. The mousy, asthmatic wife. The clueless husband. There are sadly, few surprises in this movie.

So why four stars instead of zero or one? Well, Rebecca DeMornay is superbly chilling in the role. She's absolutely believable as the nanny who has her very real reasons for going off the deep end. (In fact one of the few surprises in the film is that she is given a solid reason for flipping out. I sort of hate to say this, but I was kind of rooting for her over the very mousy Annabella Sciorra.)

The scene with DeMornay in the woman's bathroom at the arboretum was great. Her character, Payton, was quite soulless, and she made you feel her chill. She never plays a false note. The stares she gave could stop people in their tracks. You really do think this woman could kill.

Recommended. Worth watching if you want a good, entertaining. And DeMornay's character will stick with you for quite some time. She's that good (and beautiful, to boot.) Because of her story, you actually start rooting for her, except that she's gone around the bend a bit.

4.0 out of 5 stars "I'll just take my baby, and go..." September 20, 2005
The ethereal, beautiful, and always just a little too frightening Rebecca DeMornay does a star turn in this overly predictable potboiler about a psychotic Nanny run amok.

In THE HAND THAT ROCKS THE CRADLE, DeMornay plays Peyton, the widow of a Seattle-area gynecologist who commits suicide after he is accused by a patient (Annabella Sciorra) of sexual impropriety during an examination.

After losing her own pregnancy as a result of the shock of her husband's death, DeMornay manages to get hired by Sciorra to be the live-in Nanny for Sciorra's newly-arrived baby. As soon as Peyton settles in, she begins the slow and deliberate seduction and destruction of Sciorra's family, with the ultimate goal of stealing both husband and children away from the woman she considers responsible for the destruction of her own life.

Peyton is, ironically, a somewhat sympathetic character, who seems more dynamic than Sciorra's mousy Claire, at least until she starts to spit venom as her carefully constructed fantasy world begins to collapse.

The best thing about THE HAND THAT ROCKS THE CRADLE is DeMornay herself, who moves from shyness and gentleness to brazenness and cruelty with an ease that is really disturbing. DeMornay is not a great actress, but she always projects an underlying predatory sexuality that THE HAND THAT ROCKS THE CRADLE exploits magnificently.

When DeMornay's Peyton finally takes leave of her senses she is absolutely, convincingly, terrifying.

Always, ALWAYS, get references!

5.0 out of 5 stars A thriller! August 3, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This movie was terrific. Rebecca De Mornay played her part so well, I felt like I was living there in that house. You can feel the tension building and at times are very uncomfortable. It's hard to believe that someone as pretty and well-mannered as De Mornay's character could turn so evil. The character she played was probably normal until her life fell apart. In a short period of time, her husband committed suicide after the scandal came out that he was molesting patients, she lost the baby she was carrying, and was then forced to have an emergency hysterectomy. In addition to all this, her husband's estate was going to be sued by a number of sources, so she could not even keep her house or any of the money. This character had lost everything. Now she wants revenge on the woman who started it all, Claire Bartel (Sciorra). She also wants Claire's husband and two children for herself. The only thing she needs to do is get Claire out of the way. It is truly chilling from beginning to end. Seattle looks great in it, too. In fact, this movie inspired me to take my first trip to Seattle. I even went to the "Bartel's" house, which is located in Tacoma. It is a beautiful neighborhood. I took pictures of the house and surrounding area. It was hard to believe that I was actually there. The neighborhood didn't have that "chilling" feeling, though. You only get that from watching the movie. Amanda Silver did a brilliant job writing this script.
