After making a name for herself as a model, Angie Harmon hit the big leagues with a recurring role on Law and Order. Lifetime's Video Voyeur was her first opportunity to prove she could carry a production by herself. Harmo... more »n stars as real-life homemaker-turned-crusader Susan Wilson, who moved into the suburban Louisiana house of her dreams in the 1990s. Her neighbors are community leaders, the Glovers. Steve Glover (Jamey Sheridan), the church deacon, has nursed a crush on her since high school. (Although Sheridan is a couple of decades older than Harmon, both give convincing performances.) Wilson's dream turns into a nightmare when she finds that Glover has been secretly taping her. She decides to press charges but discovers that his actions aren't illegal. With the support of her family and friends, she decides to do something about it in this inspiring story from director Tim Hunter (River's Edge). --Kathleen C. Fennessy« less

This movie is based on a true story about a woman and her family who have their privacy violated by their friendly neighbor, who has installed video cameras in the attic of their bathroom and their bedrooms. Acting is well done and atmosphere of the movie makes it seem like something that could happen to you.

Really, a pretty good movie. It was just the right length, and a good watch without commercials. A great way to kill 90 minutes on the treadmill! Definitely worth a watch.

Excellent TV Movie
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This is an excellent made for TV movie. Starring Angie Harmon, Jamey Sheridan (both in the Law & Order franchise) and Dale Midkiff, this is about a family who move to Louisiana and their friendly neighbour, who happens to be a Deacon in the church, plants cameras in the house and spies on them.What's make this hit home is that this is true and could happen to anyone. It makes you think about all the daft things you do when alone (like singing in the shower!) when you think no-one's looking.There are great performances all round, from the whole cast. I've only seen Angie Harmon on Law & Order and was pleasantly surprised by how good an actress she is. Dale Midkiff is also very good in this, as he gets older he gets better and so do the parts he's getting, and Jamey Sheridan is excellent as the creepy neighbour. TV movies are usually run of the mill but this is very good. Much better than the garbage that's made here in the UK.However, the only thing is that this was made in Canada, not Louisiana and it shows, it looks really cold, not the South at all!"
A family changed by a video voyeur

"WOW! This movie rocks. This is a movie about Susan Wilson and her family and the effects of their life being taped with out your permission. Susan was not going to sit there and do nothing, she stood up and made people who are doing these crimes accountable for them. This is a true story about a women who changed the law about video Voyeurs. And for those who may not know what Video Voyeur is it is the tapeing of your life, personal moments, sexual moments, and things to that effect with out your permission. Video Voyeurs can happen any where. Susan was safe in her own home, or so she thought! This was a GREAT lifetime original movie........"
A Better Than Average TV Movie

"Although I don't usually watch made-for-TV movies, the only reason I watched this one is because I'm an Angie Harmon fan, otherwise I wouldn't have bothered.
This is a typical "woman in jeopardy" story based on a real life tale. What sets it apart from others(in my opinion)is the fine performance turned in by Ms. Harmon as Susan Wilson, a wife and mother of two who is being secretly videotaped by her neighbor and fellow churchgoer. She brings an emotional and energetic spirit to the character as we see her first settling in to the new communtiy, then discovering the disturbing invasion of privacy, and finally fighting back against the man responsible. Rather than remaining a victim, Susan Wilson chose to confront this individual and prosecute him as far as the state supreme court regardless of what her friends and neighbors said, and Angie Harmon portrays that effectively.
The movie does not give too much depth to the other characters such as Susan's husband and the motivations behind the neighbor's voyeurism but it does a good job with the title character and the essence of this story.
A routine story saved by a fine lead performance."
Meant for All TV Movie Fans!

""Video Voyeur" is an emotional thrill ride into the life of Susan Wilson, a woman whose perfect life is brought to a halt when she finds tiny spy cams everywhere in her house. Although this is not one of my top film faves, I recommend it for anyone who loves TV movies (especially those awesome Lifetime dramas!). You will truly feel Susan's struggle to cope with the embarrassment,anger, and frustration of this ordeal because this type of violation can happen to any of us. Plus, Angie Harmon is excellent in her role!"
THIS IS A TRUE STORY!

"Angie Harmon stars in this true story where a Louisiana town's church deacon secretly plants video cameras inside a woman's home, giving him the ability to watch her every move...in the bedroom, in the shower, everywhere. When the woman finds out what is happening, and reports it..she finds out that what he did is not illegal. This is a true story! Angie Harmon and the lady who this movie is really about were recently on the talk show circuit saying how they are actually traveling from state to state in order to pass laws in each state making sure that this kind of behavior is deemed illegal. A great, enjoyable, empowering movie..I've watched it a few times already."
