You won't be taken with "Taken From Me: The Tiffany Rubin Story"

When you see that an Academy Award nominated actress is starring in a Lifetime movie, you could think 'Hmm, how the mighty have fallen," or "That's gonna be a good movie!"

I went with the latter thought in approaching "Taken From Me: The Tiffany Rubin Story" (Lifetime, 9 tonight) starring Taraji P. Henson (who was nominated for her role in "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button").

Oh well. I wouldn't say Henson has fallen, but this wasn't a good movie, and worse, Henson's performance won't attract any award attention.

Based on a true story, the movie introduces us to Tiffany Rubin, a happily married mother of a young son Kobe (Drew Davis). Her son's father (Sean Baek), we learn, is shady, but Tiffany believes he's more stable now and trying to be a good dad. So despite her mother's warning (mom is played by Beverly Todd), Tiffany allows dad to take her son for a week's vacation to Florida. Instead dad flees to his native country, Korea, kidnapping their son.
