In short time both mom and dad are dating again, something both girls seem to take in stride until dad decides to remarry.

After the wedding Dad soon turns his time and attentions to his new family, his new wife and her young daughter. This is made apparent when a ski trip is planned and both sisters are uninvited. Fast-forward 10 years.

A touchy familiar movie
9 December 2001 | by See all my reviews

A 1981 TV drama movie about the divorce of the couple (Dennis Weaver and Valerie Harper) and the consecuent troubles and traumas that the children are victims of (Dominique Dunne and Ally Sheedy). The phsycologic point of view of the eldest daugther and the struggle to take her parents back together. Perhaps with a dated picture but entertaning show. A modest but with several good lines movie and a touchy performance of the late Dominique Dunne (Poltergeist), murdered in 1982.
