Good basic "underdog wins" TV movie
1 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a good basic movie about an ethical issue of whether it's right for a 16-year-old boy to sue his parents because he wants to have surgery that will drastically reduce his epileptic seizures. His parents feel the risks are too great. He gets moral support from his tutor (Danielle von Zerneck) and a friendship/romance develops between them. The courtroom scenes are a little overdone (too much drama) but it still leaves you hanging regarding the judge's decision. The big names in this flick (Beau Bridges, Karen Valentine, Patrick Dempsey) evidently weren't enough to make this one popular enough to get it made into VHS or DVD. Sad. It is still a good movie, pulling at your heartstrings, and making you feel really good by the end. If this one ever is rerun on TV, watch it!
