Storyline

Laura's parents divorced when she was eight. Now, at thirteen, she lives with her mother, her stepfather, two stepbrothers, a stepsister, and a half-brother. She used to visit her father, stepmother (third stepmother) and half-sister, but now *another* divorce is in the works, so Laura visits her father and his pregnant girlfriend -- who's only six years older than she is. Who should she feel loyalty to? And is it any wonder she wants to run away from home? Written by Susan C. Mitchell <susanm@indirect.com>

On the DVD release, on the outside jacket's plot synopsis, the studio mistakenly uses the lead actress' real name - Hillary - to describe her in the fictional story line. Hillary Wolf's character's name was Laura. See more »

This is such a great movie
27 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved this movie so much I bought the VHS tape and I don't regret it one bit spending the 5 dollars to get it. This movie is funny, emotional, and has just great performances by Hillary Wolf, Griffin Dunne, Dan Futterman, David Straithirn etc... I would completely recommend everyone to buy this movie on VHS. You will cherish this movie forever. I love the song at the end. It makes you feel so good about the ending. The soundtrack is great on this movie and I wish it was released. Hopefully a DVD of this movie will come out in the near future with extras, deleted scenes, and bloopers. I really wish Hillary Wolf and Margaret Whitton could come back to acting. They are such great actresses. Wolf was great in Home Alones 1 and 2 and Whitton was wonderful in Major League 1 and 2 as the owner. I think they should have a reunion to put on the DVD. It would be great see what everyone is up to now and to see how much everyone has changed.
