Ellie and Neil are finally getting some alone time after dropping their two children off at summer camp. Ellie chases their dog into the neighbor’s yard and accidentally invites the neighbor, Jake, for dinner. Two days later, Jake has kidnapped them both. Jake has three rules for Ellie…but only the last one is important. “All you have to do is Tell Me My Name. Say it, or your husband loses a toe.”
I’m not sure why but I really didn’t care what happened to these characters. Usually, I enjoy an unsympathetic hero or heroine. I think it was because I didn’t feel that they acted the way a real person would in the same situation. Plus I was quickly sick of hearing about Ellie’s childhood issues. I also dislike the ending as it was just too much of a coincidence. For me, 2 stars.
