Something very special...
6 May 2002 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

A fresh, buoyant made-for-TV comedy-drama about a rattled woman trying to cope with the fact her 20-ish son is dating a woman just about her age. Performances by Ellen Burstyn and Tuesday Weld are joyful, and Eli Wallach is a real stitch as Burstyn's wily old father. Even Patrick Cassidy as Ellen's son is just about perfect (no drippy, youthful overtures from him, and that's as it should be). Burstyn, sarcastic without being caustic, really had me laughing in places; she's so good in her dramas that one is at first stunned to see her in such bright, loose surroundings. A ratings winner, and a bouquet to family and romance.
