Good Little Issues Movie
14 October 2001 | by (Tampa, Florida) – See all my reviews

I like Lori Loughlin in this picture, which is quality work with no frills. She plays a tough little divorcee named Gerri Jensen whose dirtbag ex-husband refuses to pay child-support for their two adorable young sons & who has to deal with a petty bureaucrat with issues of his own. Even her former in-laws treat her like trash, only willing to be good to their grandkids. After discovering how little help she's getting from her welfare counselor, Jensen puts an ad in the paper asking other women who've been dealt with unfairly by the man and several show up. They begin a crusade to get their kids what is owed them and put self-centered men in their place. This is the kind of story Barbara Stanwyck might have played with a bit more spunk in the old days, but Loughlin plays it realistically, right down to the "but I don't want to be a martyr" attitude that comes with social crusading. I love the way she runs to the phone to keep her son from hearing the filth she was faced with (and kept a whistle handy to blow into the mouthpiece) on a daily basis from disgruntled deadbeat dads. A good one to rent out on Mother's Day.
