Who else wonders why she didn’t get some saliva on the cup in the first place right away that’s what I would’ve done

I think the movie insults the audience intelligence why in the world wouldn’t a person just try to get some DNA off of those women to try to figure out which one is the real mother all they would need is a little flava off on a cup or something it’s just dumb. The skit didn’t make any sense all that trouble and all you needed was a little DNA.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

A swift-paced revenge narrative adorned with extravagant fashion and picturesque Mexican landscapes. Where Pact of Silence falls short is in character development: The protagonist's relentless quest to find the mother who abandoned her is the only thing that defines her, and her four suspects are similarly one-dimensional. Though the series leans heavily into melodrama over storytelling, it still manages to keep viewers engaged in its central mystery. If you're in the mood for an intriguing drama with lots of eye candy, Pact of Silence may be worth a watch. But be warned, the scenes of child abuse and rape are difficult to watch and jarring in what could otherwise be considered a guilty pleasure.
