Beautiful sisterly friendship
2 July 2002 | by (TX, US) – See all my reviews

I have to say that the scene in which Sharon (Kristin Dattilo) finds out about Katie's (Kellie Martin) problem is the best scene in the whole movie. When she flat-out asks her if Jimmy is how she got the black eye, and she races into the other room, I find that to be very real. Bravo to the director. I personally think that Kristin should have gotten a bigger part in the film.
