A Liza tour-de-force
22 September 1999 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

Minnelli is devastatingly on-target and utterly convincing as a suburban mother caring for her terminally ill son (Corey Haim, excellent in the best role of his career). Originally (and more appropriately) titled "Intensive Care", this project will remind you Liza Minnelli began work in films as a dramatic actress, not a musical comedy star. It's a pity she doesn't do more work of this nature, as she is a powerhouse here.
