Cal asks Bianca what the baby's due date is. She tells him it's February. He then says something to the extent that there are 28 days in February and to narrow it down. She tells him it's the 20th or 21st, it's not an exact science. He then marks an big X on the calendar on what is supposed to be the 20th and 21st of February. The X's are put on a Friday and Saturday. The calendar clearly shows nine additional days in February. February has only 28 days, as Cal mentions. Even if it's a leap year, the calendar shows too many additional days past the 21st. See more »

19 September 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a TV movie and in its way, it is a cut above average. First of all, it has Veronica Hamel and Michael Madsen, two very good actors. Secondly, it's a true story, making it all the more outrageous.

Veronica Hamel plays a total nut job who basically has no use for kids. She does the usual baby-stealing bit we've seen so many times to give her husband a child which she conveniently delivers by herself at home. When Madsen comes home after the "delivery," Veronica looks gorgeous as the baby lies in her arms, like something out of a magazine. Madsen's character is just a tad naive, as we learn as the story continues. For instance, he tells his friends that the baby is something like three months, when it's obvious the baby is more like nine months.

Hamel's character isn't particularly far thinking. She manages to stay married to her husband while faking pregnancy. After nine months she makes a call from a phone booth and tries to adopt a baby for like the next day. It's a riot! Veronica, you should have started making plans a LOT earlier. So she has no choice but to steal one - and it's not exactly a newborn.

I really recommend it - it's a hoot and holds your interest.
