Laughably bad...
29 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The writer and author didn't have the slightest clue about the subject matter involved. Or genetics, for that matter. A little bit of research about child custody, sociology or the judicial process would have helped. Nobody in the process whatsoever thought a counselor might be brought in at any stage? Not with either set of parents? Not involved with the transition? Not at the school? There's a trope called "Did Not Do the Research" that they ran into the ground here and the story suffers and leads to every single moment where you found yourself banging your head against the table at the sheer stupidity of the characters involved. Ironic that ABC Family showed this since it highlights how much better, more realistic and with greater respect the subject matter is treated by their show Switched at Birth. I can't believe the studio didn't laugh this movie into the trashcan.
