Review - Along Came a Spider

There are plot twists, and then there's just silly. Supposedly the original kidnapper posed as a school teacher for two years to kidnap a student who he would then have send secret messages to another student so he could kidnap him. While all this was going on, the security guard at the school and his secret service girlfriend figured it out waited until they could kidnap the student from the kidnapper and demand $10 million in diamonds, all while the girlfriend was posing as the policeman's partner . But then the secret service girlfriend killed her partner so she could have all the diamond. But the policeman hacked into her computer on a ridiculous hunch and tracked her down just as she was trying incompetently to kill a 12 year old girl. Just goofy. Morgan Freeman acted like he was asleep and Monica Potter like she was in a coma.
