Worth Watching
15 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

So, the story is actually pretty good, and it keeps you interested. I love Judith Light in anything, and this is no different. Her character is nearly identical to that of Angela Bower. She's a high powered attorney instead of an ad executive, but you get the idea. It even looks like she borrowed clothes from Angela's closet for this movie. My big complaint about this movie is that she and her on screen husband have NO chemistry. He's wearing sweats and exercising for much of the time and ends up looking less like her husband and more like her son who's been scolded for being a naughty. Speaking of her son, he's played by a pre-Roseanne Johnny Galecki, who does a pretty good job too.

Anyway, I saw the movie on Netflix, so if you have that, I do recommend giving it a look!
