Once again, I find myself completely enamored with a film that many viewers obviously didn't like. I'm at a loss to explain others' displeasure, as I found Hide and Seek to be an exemplary film with a wonderfully pervasive dark aura, oodles of suspense, a genuinely excellent script, standout performances by both Robert De Niro and young Dakota Fanning, and an ending with plenty of shock value that also manages to play itself out well up through the very end. It's going to be hard to really explain my take on the excellence of this film, though, because it just won't do to give future viewers more than a rudimentary glimpse at the basic story. Maybe those who disliked the film knew too much going in; such knowledge would rob Hide and Seek of most of its dramatic power.

De Niro is always good; when you sit and watch the guy work, it's hard to call anyone else in Hollywood a real actor - and the character he played had to have such a great actor in order to make this film be all it could be. It also needed a great child actress, and Dakota Fanning may well be the best up and coming actress out there. She more than holds her own against De Niro, basically giving an adult performance as Emily, a young girl haunted by the death of her mother. After finding his wife dead in the bathtub, David Calloway (De Niro) decides to move with his daughter to a quiet country house outside the Big City. Emily is having a rough time dealing with the trauma of her mother's death, and he thinks she needs a brand new start, free of the bad memories haunting her. Their new, quiet life proves to be less than ideal - and increasingly downright unhealthy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ghost of Greatness March 9 2006
Format:DVD
Fanning is brilliant in her role as a haunted young girl. DeNiro, though, is all wrong for the part of her father. Not because he can't act, but because these days he can't keep from impersonating himself - a condition afflicting most established stars. It's kept in check throughout most of the picture, but once the disappointing ending is set into motion his hammy performance summons to mind Analyze That, Meet the Parents, etc., completely killing the tension built early on. Just an average thriller overall.

3.0 out of 5 stars FATHER KNOWS BEST... July 28 2005
By Lawyeraau TOP 100 REVIEWER
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.
