Storyline

Jesse is nine months pregnant and lives with her underemployed husband Hank in a dilapidated mobile home in a rusty trailer park. During an afternoon of talk, Jesse discovers that Hank has been spending time with Bonnie, their young, bovine neighbor. Jesse is hurt and furious, and Hank is defensive, claiming that the baby has pushed him out. While Hank is elsewhere, the other woman pays a surprise visit to Jesse. Healing begins, and when Jesse's labor starts, it's Bonnie who comes to the rescue. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Accurate Example of Life in a Trailer Park
15 September 2008 | by (Indiana) – See all my reviews

It's been several years since I've watched this movie. I have the VHS somewhere; I don't believe it has ever been available on DVD. I agree with several of the previous user comments. The film started out as one of those "I'll never make it to the end of this" kind of shows, but by the end, you realize that you were actually entertained. I recall the movie sneaking into my thoughts for weeks after watching it. With such a small cast and single location, it does feel like theater caught on film. Of course, I must agree that Yeardley Smith's nude scene is a real highlight of this show. Watch this movie without expectation and I believe by the end, you'll be glad you did.
