User Reviews: I can’t believe that this movie hasn’t been commented on before now. As far as I am concerned this is a must see movie. There are several things that set this movie apart from many other made for TV movies. First of all the choice of leads Tom & Roseann. You usually think of the two of them as comedians, but they both give beautiful heartwarming performances that you wouldn’t normally expect form either of them. They have both gone on to other things in their careers, but this movie stands out as perhaps their finest performances.

Second is the characters in this story. Not only are they believable, but you actually can care about each and every one of them. The story itself is nicely constructed, and it leaves you really wanting that happy resolution you hope is coming. If this movie ever comes on TV in your area, the hour and a half you spend watching it will not have been wasted.
