"A Child Too Many" is an excellent telemovie in the sense that it raises moral issues about surrogacy and the ways in which it can go wrong. While I will not give away the outcome, the conclusion of this movie does reflect the fact that no-one can emerge as a winner when the circumstances portrayed in this film come to light. Michele Green, Conor O'Farrell, Stephen Macht and Nancy Stafford are all excellent in their respective roles and they contribute to the success of this movie. The only real criticism of this movie is that it is just a little too syrupy for its own good in some parts
