Monotony is a pro where in any other cinematic context it would be a con. A 'predictable thriller' sounds oxymoronic but being formulaic works when you're on the lookout for contained kicks or to get absolutely smashed during one of the many Lifetime-themed drinking games.
By refusing to get with the times, Lifetime movies are not held to any real standards at all. In the age of cancel culture, this makes them truly uncancellable. Pointing out that Lifetime movies are problematic feels wholly redundant, so no one really bothers.
