When unassuming geologist Simon Miller mysteriously disappears one night, the Miller family is thrown into a desperate search to find him. Simon's wife Meredith and their two kids, Sarah, 18, and Kevin, 15, frantically search Simon's office for information. When they find a stash of passports, all with Simon's picture but each with a different alias, they realize that their father has been keeping more than a few secrets. Who is Simon Miller? And what has he gotten himself - and now his family - into? Not sure they can even trust the Dad they thought they knew, the Millers embark on an international mission to get him back. It's a heart-pounding adventure that tests the limits to which families will fight for each other. (The movie stars Robyn Lively, Loren Dean, Skyler Day, Drew Koles, and Christine Baranski.)I have seen all of the P&G/Walmart Family Night Movies and I'll admit that the first few may have been extremely cheesy, but they are definitely getting better. Who Is Simon Miller? still had the usual product plugs, but they aren't near as obvious. The plot of this movie was a bit far fetched and there were times that I felt it was drawn out, but I really enjoyed it. The movie kept me in suspense and had some great acting. While it is a family movie and there is no foul language or sexual references, there was quite a bit of violence in this one. The violence isn't too bad, but bad enough that I'd rather not have my preschooler and toddler watch it.
Here is the trailer-
Be sure to tune in this Friday, August 8th at 8/7c on NBC to watch Who Is Simon Miller?.
