Herself - Presenter: Hello, I'm Danielle Steel. I'm happy you're here with us tonight for 'Changes'. It's a book about the mashing of two families. Bringing together a man and a woman, and their very different children isn't an easy thing to do, but Peter and Melanie meet the challenge well. I like them and their patchwork family and I hope you do too. I hope you enjoy watching 'Changes'.

Changes Makes for Good Soap Gossip ***
27 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Cheryl Ladd and Michael Nouri provide for the right chemistry between themselves in this good film of Danielle Steele's book.

A television news reporter has a meeting with an L.A. surgeon and the two fall passionately in love with each other. He is a widower and she is a divorcée. Both have children. The film does not fully concentrate on Nouri's 15 year old problematic daughter, who has taken her mother's death badly and deeply resents Ladd's entrance into the household.

There are shades of the classic 1940 film REBECCA in this film. There is a picture of his dead wife hanging in the hallway and there is a maid who will remind you of Mrs. Danvers without the fireworks.

The story does try to show too much with people of dedicated careers remarrying and the problems that this brings forward. Then, there are the children who not only can't get along but the doctor's son impregnates Ladd's daughter with near tragic results. Of course, we have the doctor's star patient dying which doesn't help matters either. It is the passion and commitment of Ladd and Nouri to this film that helps it succeed. Get those suds ready.
