A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this movie.
Good defeats evil.
Positive Role Models
Main character who's confident, smart, compassionate, and loyal makes many errors in judgment, ultimately gets away with them, and doesn't appear to learn much. Ethnic diversity in the cast.
Violence & Scariness
Moments of violence and suspense. A restaurant robbery; a character is killed; a fight. Home invasion is a theme: noises, shadowy figures. Discovery of a long-dead body is revealed by a hand hanging over a shelf. A violent hit to the back of the head. Point-blank gunfire kills villain. Someone dies from a fall down a staircase.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Dangerous Lies is a thriller about a conscientious female caregiver named Katie (Camila Mendes) who's in grave danger. After she unexpectedly learns that she's heir to her patient's estate, a series of mysterious events threaten Katie's freedom, her marriage, and her life. Suspenseful/violent scenes include a restaurant robbery in which a fight occurs and someone is killed, the discovery of a long-dead body, point-blank gunfire that results in a bloody death, a fatal fall, and several stealthy home invasions. Occasional swearing includes "s--t," "ass," "hell," "bitch," and "Christ." A married couple kisses passionately, then starts to undress and engages in foreplay, but no actual sexual activity is shown. Some social drinking.

Is It Any Good?
With a story that advertises "Instant Heiress" and Murder, it shouldn't be hard to fire up an audience, but this routine movie with thin characters and a haphazard plot fails to ignite. Predictable elements like hidden treasures (not one, but two), a psychopathic criminal, a suspicious death, and a dogged policewoman don't help. And it's always a good thing when characters are complex, with strengths and flaws, but in Dangerous Lies, it's difficult to root for a main character who does so many dumb things. The character of Katie when we meet her is smart, kind, and loving, but the "smart" simply disappears. Adam, who is introduced as brave and loyal, is the wrong-headed instrument of his own undoing. Mystery and suspense fans should aim higher.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
