Surprisingly decent movie!

I had never heard of this movie before, but while looking for something to rent at the video store, I saw this on DVD listed as a new release even though it was 9 years old! It sounded half interesting and I was a Melissa Gilbert fan from LHOTP, so I gave it a shot. It turned out to be a really excellent movie. A happy surprise was that Matthew Lawrence was in it. He is such a cute boy. And he was real good in it. Everyone was. Even Michael Gross who I don't like. Far cry from Family Ties! Out of 10 I give this movie a 10. It had a lot of great stuff about it and I don't think there was anything I didn't like in it. So if you happen to find this little unknown hidden movie, give it a try! It's also called Undesirable =) At least in Canada. Bye!
