Format: DVD
Let me cut to the chase. This film did not, at all, meet my expectations. The trailers lead one to believe that it is a film with supernatural overtones, but it turns out to be something else all together. The story line seems simple on its face. Alison Callaway (Amy Irving), a wife and loving mother, unexpectedly decides to slit her wrist in the bathtub one night, killing herself. Her husband, psychologist David Callaway, comes upon her lifeless body, and so does their beloved daughter, Emily (Dakota Fanning). Emily goes into shock and comes under the care of a therapist named Katherine (Famke Janssen).

Sometime later, when Emily's condition seemingly improves, her father then decides to leave New York City, where they live, and relocate to a small upstate town. No sooner do they move there, they meet the real estate agent and the town's sheriff, both of whom seem a tad peculiar. Moreover, there appears to be something not quite right with the couple next door, especially the husband. When Emily starts talking about an ostensibly imaginary friend named Charlie, the viewer knows that something is afoot. When David develops a new friend of his own, Elizabeth (Elizabeth Shue), trouble lies ahead, as Emily exhibits bizarre behavior towards her, as well as towards Elizabeth's young niece who is trying to befriend her.

As Charlie appears to be becoming an ever present and ominous entity in their lives, and Emily's odd behavior continues unabated, David remains the most kind, concerned, and understanding of fathers. He contacts Emily's therapist Katherine, who is very concerned about the eccentric behavior Emily is exhibiting. Meanwhile, the male neighbor interjects himself into the picture in a seemingly ominous way.

At one point I said to my wife, if Emily's friend Charlie turns out to be "X" I'm really going to be pissed. Charlie was "X". Predictable. Bad. If you liked the movie Identity - the lamest thriller of all time - you will like this. Dakota's acting is incredible but the story and premise are just stupid. Terrible writing. Did a 10 year old write this piece of junk? People are actually getting paid real money to write this garbage? There's more mystery, tension, and suspense in what lies beneath all that mold in the vegetable drawer in my fridge than you will find here. What the heck happened to the DeNiro we once knew? Pathetic. Just pathetic.

As soon as I hear that a certain movie is going to have an "unbelievable twist" I can almost always guess what it is going to be as I'm sure most of you movie fans do. This is one such movie.
After the apparant suicide of his wife, David (Robert DeNiro) a phsycologist decides it best to move his daughter Emily (Dakota Fanning) out from their familiar New York City home to the country side feeling that the change of scenery will help his daughter adjust to life without her mother.
Into a few days, Emily developes a disturbing friendship with the unseen "Charlie" who David feels is an imaginary friend thought up by his daughter to place responsibility of his wife's death onto him, but not directly from Emily. Only, when David slides on his music to write in his journal about Emily's trauma, does Charlie and Emily begin to play extremely chilling games.
There are a bit too many characters thrown into the story to obviously keep you clueless, which is no surprise that these characters really do not weave with the story, they barely flow which makes their motives for potentially being "Charlie" pretty weak.
Over all, Dakota Fanning is completely creepy, but that doesn't keep the story from being dreadfully long to the point. I understand it's keeping with such slow paced psychological thrillers like The Shinning and Taxi Driver, but it turns out to be simply... long.
Perhaps there are just too many movies out there like this to be original. But as far as predictability goes, it's not that terrible of a movie. But it is, I'm afraid, a one time watcher.

8 of 10 people found the following review helpful By E. Karasik on July 15, 2005
Format: DVD
Unlike "The Sixth Sense" -- which this film seeks to emulate --"Hide and Seek" left me feeling dissatisfied and disgruntled. The plot was actually so predictable that it never occurred to me that the filmmakers would use such a worn-out cliche, so I guess in that sense it did surprise me. But, in order to sustain the "surprise," the film is obliged to be massively and transparently manipulative. As a result, the personalities were so poorly realized and inconsistent that the main characters never gelled for me. Ordinarily I'm crazy about Robert De Niro and Dakota Fanning, but there is only so much they could do with this screenplay. The bloody violence escalated so quickly that two-thirds of the way into the film I was numbed into indifference, which is usually a symptom of a film that substitutes gore for narrative. At least this is the case for the theatrical release version; after barely sitting through that, I certainly have no interest in seeing all the alternate versions. One bright spot was the art direction -- I enjoyed the drawings made by the child protagonist; they added a bit of texture to the otherwise lackluster story, and brought a modicum of punch to the final scene. And by the way, did anyone else notice that the cat changed colors (from orange to gray) half way through the movie?
