15 March 1999 | by RumplesSee all my reviews

This made for TV movie melodrama is a very sad reflection on Meredith Baxter (Birney)'s decline since the cancellation of 'Family Ties'. In no way could any sane person give this movie a 10 - although I note it has received a couple. As it is just barely watchable and partially out of pity, I gave it a 6.
