Godawful TV fakery
16 March 2001 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Linda Lavin and Kristy McNichol fail to convince as mother and daughter. With Mom single again, she and her teenage daughter unpack in their new house and do a little dance together in the kitchen (The Bump, I believe, or is that The Hustle?). With all signs apparent that these two really get along just like buddies, it's only a matter of time before a man comes between them and stops all that dancing. Kristy soon gets a boyfriend of her own, who lets her hug him every time there's a problem. LOTS of hugging and near-tears melodrama in this TV-movie, written by Nancy Lynn Schwartz from Sheila Schwartz's book. Truly numbing.
