(at around 1h 40 mins) When Monahan comes into Helen's apartment with her gun drawn, she sees herself 'live' on the TV screen, while the camcorder is pointed toward her. The Post-It note reads "Press Play". When a camcorder is in "camera mode", pressing Play will do nothing. In order to play a recorded tape, you must first switch the camcorder to the video playback setting. See more »
This is not even close to Silence of the Lambs. In fact, it has so many plot holes and logical inconsistencies that 6 - 6.5 rating is generous. Acting was good but character development was sparse. We get no background on why this kid kills. He just does. And, the all-knowing psychologist who surmises that he has technical lab job, can't figure out that he has access to sperm samples and get police over to IVF labs? Really? The most unbelievable part of Copycat is that the Dr. gets attacked multiple times in her apt yet police put a single,bumbling officer outside her door time and time again. The movie has some suspense but it is not even close to top thrillers of all-time. Too highly rated on Amazon and by many here..
