You gotta have heart
6 October 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This flick is tricky to come by, but it is available on video and is extremely likable. A very young Annie Potts plays an insecure pregnant woman who is afraid to tell her husband that he is not the father of the bun in the oven. She runs away and moves in with Margot Kidder's raunchy man-hungry drifter. The chemistry between the two make it a hard show to resist. A female buddy movie with a refreshing lightness of touch and some beautiful cinematography.
