Added DiffLines:

* DesignatedHero: Claire can be this for some viewers. Mainly because she seems more interested in growing plants than wanting to spend time with her own children.

* RootingfortheEmpire: A lot of viewers can't help but root for Peyton, mainly due to De Mornay's excellent and charismatic performance compared to the rather bland protagonists.

* HollywoodHomely: No makeup is supposedly enough to make Annabella Sciorra the dowdy alternative to Rebecca [=DeMornay=].

Added DiffLines:

* FridgeHorror[=/=]FridgeLogic: Peyton isn't able to make Claire think Solomon's molesting Emma just because it's every parent's worst nightmare. It's also because what Dr. Mott did to her has made her extra paranoid. Which raises the icky possibility that she knew all along what kind of a sicko she was married to, but chose to turn a blind eye.

* EvilIsSexy: If it's Rebecca Demornay
* MagnificentBitch: Peyton, who manipulates ''every'' situation with success until the very end. She's ''that'' smart, and Rebecca Demornay manages to play her ''very'' convincingly.
* MoralEventHorizon: Peyton crosses this when she frames Solomon of molesting Emma, causing him to get fired. And she just goes further from there...
* OneSceneWonder: John Delancie as Dr Mott.
* TearJerker: At one point, Solomon says that one thing he really wants is a blue bicycle, and the family give it to him to show that they consider him very much a part of the family. While this is [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming quite sweet]], [[spoiler: it becomes absolutely heartbreaking when Peyton accuses and frames him of sexually abusing Emma... and we see a shot of Solomon just looking hurt and confused as his bike is taken away from him.]]

* TheWoobie: Solomon.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: Peyton. Would she really have done all this had she not simultaneously lost her husband, unborn child, and presumably everything else?

* CompleteMonster: Peyton, most definitely. Maybe she didn't start out this way, but by the end of the movie, ''hoo boy''.
** MagnificentBitch: Also Peyton, who manipulates ''every'' situation with success until the very end. She's ''that'' smart, and Rebecca Demornay manages to play her ''very'' convincingly.
