“You know what your problem is Darnell? Just can’t help showing off. ” – Jane Doe
Number of Times Seen – 1 (14 Mar 2022)
Brief Synopsis – A former federal agent is hired as a consultant by her former boss in order to try and figure out how a scientist disappeared from being on a flight carrying secret data.
My Take on it – I have always enjoyed watching lea Thompson both on TV and in films and this is a role that she played in numerous TV movies over the period of a few years.
Her character is described quite well here as a former agent, turned housewife who creates word puzzles for a living.
When her former boss needs help on a mysterious case, he brings her back as a consultant since her analytical mind might be able to help them figure out how a man can disappear from a flight mid-air.
The story plays out quite well and they give small clues along the way that once pieced together shed so much more light on what actually transpired.
The production value of the film is quite low due to the small budget and that hurts things a bot from becoming more profound in the way that this mystery is both investigated and eventually solved.
The film adds in a new level by showing how much she has to keep secret from her husband and kids about her past and present history with the government and that is done in a pretty realistic way throughout.

Hi MovieRob! Nice to see Hallmark titles being featured in your collection of films! I have seen almost all of the ‘Jane Doe’ movies. Unfortunately, I found ‘Jane Doe: Vanishing Act’ to be the worst one. If you want to read my thoughts on that film, you can check out my list of the worst movies I saw in 2020.
