A heart warming drama
9 October 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a touching drama about a mother, father and a son who are having their good times and bad times. I think the whole cast are excellent and superb. Before and after they portrayed the popular characters that are invovled in the action genre (Peter Weller of Robocop fame) potrays a father whose job is keeping him from spending time with his wife (Lindsay Wagner of The Bionic Woman fame) and son (Ricky Schroder of Silver Spoons and the future N.Y.P.D Blue star). However, there are differences between the father and son and the mother has to cope with the fact of keeping the bond between them. When she's terminally ill the son is still hating his father even more.

After the mother dies, the father and son try to bury the hatchet, settle their differences. I like this movie and actors in it are terrific. I am mad at the fact that it didn't recieve any awards. I give movie an excellent A+.>
