No Good Deed : What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kids???

What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kids???

Who the hell just lets a stranger in their house I don't care how the weather was or their situation

Re: What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kid

The same type of mother that leaves their five year old daughter alone in the kitchen with a knife in their hand while she goes answer the door.

Re: What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kid

I found that odd too.....

Re: What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kid

It was a butter knife. And the little girl was cutting hot dogs, not vegetables.

Re: What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kid

I know. Not only did the complete implausibility of letting a perfect stranger into one's home bother me to no end, but the child holding the butter knife did as well. Even though it wasn't a steak knife.....it still cuts!!!! I would never leave a child that young unattended holding a butter knife. Never.

Re: What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kid

he was pretending to be a neighbor. and also he was charming

Re: What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kids???

Would have been a short movie if she hadn't let him in the house.

Re: What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kid

Oh good so it wasn't just me. I was like ummmmm really you are going to let a stranger in your home with two very small children.

I thought by the previews he just forced himself into the home after their initial exhange at the front door. Guess I was wrong.

Re: What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kid

Yea, the child had a butter knife but still you're right. She was doing waay too much while he was in her crib. I mean she was changing and he watched from across the way.

Re: What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kid

Especially a former prosecutor who you'd think would have more sense.

Re: What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kid

I really think it's because it's a thriller and that we know he's violent that we call her stupid for letting him into the house. Let us for a moment consider things not from the mind that every stranger on the planet is a psycho killer. He came to her door said that he had a car accident, which he did, and he was injured and just asked to use the phone. People like him are able to make people believe what he wants them too. So she lets him use the phone to call AAA. I think we all would in that situation. Then it becomes interesting when he lets him into the house, he says he'll wait outside in the middle of a huge storm for the tow truck and he's hurt. I don't know about you but I think most people would have let him into the house. I mean if it was storming like that (and since I didn't see him beat his ex to death) I wouldn't know he was a criminal I would let him in, even if I did have kids. It's the nice thing to do which is why the film is called No Good Deed. She does a nice thing and ends up paying for it. Also if any of you noticed the way she was looking at him and talking to him (and that her marriage was a shambles) she was thinking of cheating on her husband. I mean he's a good looking guy so she's thinking that at the same time. Just saying if it were a Nicholas Sparks romance all we'd hear about is how sext Elba looked all wet in the rain.

Re: What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kid

I agree 100%.

Re: What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kid

ROFL, so true. And I have to agree, in that situation I think a lot of people would have done the same thing.

Re: What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kid

I still wouldn't have let him in....even someone as fine looking as Idris Elba.

No way. I would gave called a tow truck for him, and have him wait outside. I wouldn't have even given him my phone.

Re: What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kid

In this day and age, I still wouldn't let him in. I know that makes me sound cruel and heartless, but that is just the way I am. I know this is going to make me sound like some crazy, paranoid everyone-is-out-to-get-me person, but I don't open my door to anyone unless I know them (especially at night, alone with 2 kids--um, nope!). As silly as this sounds, I either yell through my door to talk to them, or open my blinds and talk to them through the closed window. Honestly, I don't know any of my friends or family that would allow a stranger into their home like that. If someone came to my door like that, I would either tell them to sit on my porch while I called the police to help them, or I would just call a tow truck myself (then I'd call someone I know to stay on the phone with me until the tow truck/police got there). I don't even pick up hitch hikers. Again, I know I sound like a crazy person with no compassion, but I am really not like that. I just feel that in the world that we live in, you can never be too careful, and why would you take ANY kind of chance with your children?

Only a teenager could oversleep when there's a corpse to move.

Re: What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kid

No one picks up hitchhikers and you do have a valid point but at the same time. Neither of us have ever been in this situation, well that's not true, I was on the other end of the door I was boating and my boat stalled during an insane thunderstorm so I rowed to an Island that had a house on it and the lady there let me in to use the phone and dry off till someone came and got me. I mean we'll never know until it happens to us really I guess is the better way of putting it

Re: What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kid

I know I would never let someone in my home, because that is not a risk I am willing to take. Maybe I am paranoid haha, but not with 2 little kids in my house. I don't really see much difference in picking up hitchhikers vs letting a complete stranger in your home, but that is just me.

Re: What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kid

you're not crazy, you're just very rude. you dont have to let them in, but to shout at the other end of the door? wow




i've got feelings too, ya know - inbetweeners

Re: What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kid

Well I don't literally shout, I just talk to them from behind the door (more often than not I just go to the window and talk to them). Plus I don't see it as being rude--I've had people do the same to me when I have to go to someone's door for some reason or another. Besides, I'd rather be rude and alive than naive and dead. It's funny because I actually asked a lot of friends and family this question just to get their perspective, and they ALL said the same thing--you don't someone in, but you call the police for them.

Re: What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kid

birds of a feather flock together. your friends and family are just as rude as you are






i've got feelings too, ya know - inbetweeners

Re: What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kid

I would never let a stranger in my house, no matter what! that is not being rude it is being safe.......

Re: What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kid

no one said you had to let them in your house, but to treat them like they're an infection by shouting through the door. are you insane gtfo!





i've got feelings too, ya know - inbetweeners

Re: What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kid

No, you gtfo.

A lot of people have opened their front doors to strangers or done various other "polite" things because they were worried about appearing rude or insulting or racist or silly. . .and have then been raped or killed.


Everyone needs to read The Gift of Fear.

Re: What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kid

like who? because from what i've seen people have no problem displaying their racism by body language, or even more so if they speak in a different language







i've got feelings too, ya know - inbetweeners

Re: What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kid

No rabbit, you are just stupid. Rudeness has NOTHING to do with it. First of all most people already have cell phones so they can call themselves. If not, you tell them you will call the police or a relative for them. I live in the good ole South where people tend to be friendlier but we know better than to let a stranger in- especially a woman and with small children.

Like the previous poster most people would also be too cautious to let a stranger in. You can risk your life but not me.

Re: What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kid

Thank you to everyone that backed my point up! I figured the majority of people would agree with me.

Re: What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kid

It's not rude in the slightest to protect your safety. It would be very, very foolish to open your door to a stranger when home alone. Especially with kids in the house.

Re: What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kid

it is rude cause you're assuming everyone is a criminal. there are chains on doors for a reason. open the door and then offer to call for help. christ





i've got feelings too, ya know - inbetweeners

Re: What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kid

No its not rude not to open door or let a stranger in your house and that cops have say it smart not answer the door or let unknown person in your house especially if the person who staying home is woman or teenage girls


Lara Croft Himiko! The First Sun Queen! This is Yamatai.

Re: What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kid

who said anything about letting them into your house. i said THERE IS A CHAIN ON THE DOOR FOR A REASON. even if the door was closed all the way they could shoot through it.

especially if the person who staying home is woman or teenage girls

that's why men are 7 times more likely to get murdered in their lifetime, than a woman. way to be sexist

Re: What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kid

I actually cannot imagine a woman allowing a strange man in the house, whether she's alone or has children with her. It just shouldn't be done!

Anyone can claim to be in an accident or having car trouble. I still wouldn't let them in! We have a truly crazy neighbor, and my mom let her come in the house once to make a call; she claimed she was trying to find her misplaced phone. I told Mom that she should never let her in because she could be calling someone for illegal purposes~including drugs. This woman is absolutely nothing like any other neighbor, and I believe it's in her nature to do such a thing, then we could be accused of illegal activity.

We have had men come to the door for a variety of reasons~"missionaries", supposedly handymen to help with repairs, people who said they were lost (one on more than one occasion), and even car trouble. One or the other always makes an excuse or simply says, "No, thank you." Then, we close and lock the door.

I consider her stupid and irresponsible!

The day and age when you could trust someone at the door or anywhere else is long gone. I'm speaking from 60+ years of experience with the world.

Re: What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kid

That's horsesh*t. He conveniently didn't have a mobile and if he lived just round the corner as he said, why didn't he just walk home. No woman in her right mind alone in the house with her children, would let a stranger into the house no matter how wet it was or the fact he had a boo boo on his head. Plus she used to be an attorney so she would know that it is the last thing you should do. But in this ridiculous garbage, stupidity is expected.


Re: What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kid

As a prosecutor, she'd know that the paranoid attitude everyone has on this board is not realistic. The odds that someone at your door asking to use the phone is out to do any criminal deed is extremely low. I mean miniscule.

This stuff only happens in movies.

When was the last time you saw on the news that someone did a home invasion and stole the kids? Oh yeah - never.

People who are a threat to your kids are people you know, and even the extreme rare cases who are strangers snatch kids from public places, they don't ask to be invited in while the parents are home.

Re: What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kid

One dumb as a bag of rocks. I just saw this movie today, and I am so pissed at myself for ever thinking it would be good....and we are actually to believe that Taraji's character had been a prosecutor...LMAO. GTHOH with that nonsense. I love Idris Elba, but there have been much better movies made for Lifetime...SMH!!

Re: What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kid

Every woman the lives by herself should watch this movie and learn the lesson that dont ever let a stranger in your house, as a matter of fact dont even open your door for a stranger in the middle of the night. You never know who is on the other end. You dont need to risk your life in order to help someone. Worry about yourself first. Let the guy go next door where 3 dudes live. Dont endanger yourself. You are not mother teresa.

Re: What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kid

Lonely people - in particular women - do strange things. If you read between the lines, she had been 'neglected' most likely in the bedroom for quite some time by her husband. She was practically begging him to have a second husband since the birth of their newborn. We later find out the husband was having an affair. That's no excuse - a cheater is going to cheat whether his wife just gave birth or the wife is a former Miss America!

Re: What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kids???

The same kind who believed her husband was going on a golf trip with his father, but acting cagey about it.

Re: What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kid

I have done things to help strangers & by the grace of God it hasn't backfired. I have also had strangers go all out for me. I think she let him in because:

He was physically hurt; so he appealed to her compassionate side.

He claimed to live nearby; It was obviously an affluent neighborhood & unfortunately some people think that if someone is well off they won’t be a psycho killer.

He was attractive; unfortunately again some people think that psycho killers all look like monsters & Idris Elba is FAR from being remotely unattractive.

I only found her to be a little not smart when she would get the best of him & then not continue to pummel him damn near to death after the first time he recovered & came back after her

Re: What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kid

NOT ME... but you would be baffled by how many women (and men) are fooled by a pretty face and a great body. Idris was dressed nice, spoke nicely, was very attractive and she was a neglected, naïve housewife.

I AM DEE BEE -- 10 years !

Re: What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kid

I thought that was crazy too. If I'm home alone and with my kids there is no way in hell I'm answering the door for a man or woman. Even if she did let the person use the phone I would have thought to call the number back or see what he dialed. She was a fool to leave the door cracked.

I didn't notice the knife in the girl hand I know she left her in the kitchen making something.

Re: What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kid

You guys are over analyzing I fictional film. This is in the same league as " Scream" typical
Training Day 2: Alonzo's revenge!

Re: What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kid

Actually, this premise ruined it for me from the beginning. I just could not get passed the fact that she opened the door to a total stranger, much less invite him in.

Also, she was a former prosecutor. Seriously? She should have seen her share of criminal cases and criminals to know better.

Then, the children, one a baby were in the house. Even if she was that stupid, mothers, especially mothers who have just recently delivered, have some kind of hormone in their system that makes them super sensitive to protect their babies from harm.

But this I also find disturbing: Is the new woman of today so confrontational that she would mouth off to a strange man the way her best friend did? At the point where she knew he was full of siht, did it not also occur to her that they were in danger and that the best thing to do was "play along" until you saw an opportunity.

There a lot of holes in this story. But the biggest one was opening a door to a stranger. Of course, he probably would have just broken in. But if the alarm was on, at least the police would be sent.

Re: What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kid

I know right I agree with that 4th statement. Me and my sister said the same thing that she was talking way to much and telling everything that she know. She should have stayed quiet for a while longer and waited to fill Terri in.

Re: What type of mother lets a complete stranger in their house with kid

Oh wow! I thought the very same thing! And what really made it worse was she confronted him alone in the garage while Terri was in the house upstairs. When she asked for the address and he appeared hesitant she should have stalled, played it off, and then did something later.

We see the same clicheish stuff all the time. A character that sees the snake and screams prematurely before help arrives.
