Storyline

Katherine Chandler lives in an apartment house that has been purchased by the local college for a boy's dormitory. She refuses to vacate, certain that her son, who was a wild boy and disappeared after being expelled from the school twenty-sever years ago, will return. The college lets her remain as an unofficial dorm-mother to the students who treat her as their collective grandmother. She becomes convinced that one of the wild students, Johnny, is her grandson since he bears the same name as her lost son. Her attentions reform him, and he is persuaded to marry his pregnant girlfriend, Julie Horton. Katherine awaits the arrival of Johnny's parents, certain that his father is her missing son.

Goofs

When Johnny (Stuart Whitman) is telling his story about killing his friend. He states "I'll tell you a bedtime story of a brave Marine who killed a man. His best friend. Oh I was a good soldier." A Marine would never ever refer to himself as a soldier. They are Marines. And they always call themselves, their friends and anyone else who's ever been in the Corps -MARINES!. Never soldiers.

Great opportunity for Stuart Whitman
6 February 2000 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

Stuart Whitman plays a tough ex marine who enrolls in a small college and becomes a classic anti-hero. This movie has heart. Sentimental ending resolves the conflict. They just don't make movies like this anymore.
