When David, a widower with a teenaged son, marries Vicki, who is divorced and has a teenaged daughter, it's sure to be a happy family. But the kids, Tim and Jenny, become romanticly attracted to each other. Which makes David and Vicki VERY uncomfortable, and Vicki's ex-husband, Andy, furious. It's no longer a happy family in this household. Written by

Surprisingly good TV movie that manages to tell a good story with some taboo subject matter without being exploitative. Bill Bixby plays a widower with a teenage son (Dermot Mulroney) who marries divorced Dee Wallace who has a teenage daughter (Megan Follows). Over time the son and daughter become close and eventually develop romantic feelings for one another. Uh-oh! This doesn't go over well with the parents or Wallace's ex-husband.
They don't seem to make quality TV movies anymore like they used to. The cast is great, with the always-reliable Bill Bixby and Dee Wallace doing good work as the conflicted parents who don't know what to do with a situation like this. A young Dermot Mulroney is impressive before he would go onto bigger things. Megan Follows is wonderful. She was my primary childhood crush and I still find her adorable today. Most of her success came when she was younger but she's still working today and still a very good actress. This is not an easy movie to find but, if you're lucky, you can find it online or perhaps on a premium cable channel late at night some time, which is the last time I saw it.
