YMMV: The Hand That Rocks the Cradle
  • Evil Is Sexy: Especially if it's Rebecca DeMornay.
  • Jerk Ass Woobie: Peyton. Losing her baby may have made her a sociopath.
  • Magnificent Bitch: Peyton, who manipulates every situation with success until the very end. She's that smart, and Rebecca DeMornay manages to play her very convincingly.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Peyton crosses this when she frames Solomon for molesting Emma, causing him to get fired. And she just goes further from there...
  • One-Scene Wonder: John DeLancie as Dr Mott.
  • Tear Jerker: 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 quite sweet, it becomes absolutely heartbreaking when Peyton accuses him of and frames him for sexually abusing Emma... and we see a shot of Solomon just looking hurt and confused as his bike is taken away from him.
  • The Woobie: Solomon.
