Not so bad
10 December 2003 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

A lot of people didn't enjoy this, but I did. It shows a real life situation that can & does happen in any Family. Hardly any sex, swearing, drug takihg & no violence. Give it a go & have a watch if you haven't seen it. Patrick has done a lot better but when he shows his sensitive side I think he is a much better actor.
