Awesome Movie
8 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I too saw the movie when I was a kid. It was on TV the summer that I turned 12. And I have also been looking for it for years on video or DVD. I probably saw about a million movies on TV and in theaters when I was growing up, but "The Chadwick Family" is one of the few that really touched my soul, and made a lasting impression on my. I became a consummate Barry Bostwick fan after seeing it. We didn't have a color TV at home. My family and I were at my aunt's house for my mom's birthday. I positively fell in love with his dreamy blue eyes. And I mean, hey, I was at the age when girls fall in love with anyone anyway~ especially a character embroiled in a tragedy. This was before "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" came out (one of my all-time adult favs.) Although, I doubt if my father (the deacon in the church) would have allowed me to see it anyway~ ha ha. Since it had some prominent stars in it, it may eventually run on AMC, be sure not to miss it. In my opinion it's one of the best TV movies that was ever made!
