When The Other Woman Was Really Needed ***
13 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The way this film starts out, you would swear that we're in for murder and mayhem. James Read has divorced Tessa (Jill Eikenberry). The marriage produced 2 children. He has wed Laura Leighton, a young sexy model. Tessa is fuming and you think something is going to happen. Something happens all right. Tessa is diagnosed with terminal cancer and the film depicts the relationship that she builds with Leighton, the latter who shall take care of her children.

The film shows the coming of maturity of the Leighton character. She certainly rises to the occasion.

The last part of the film falters somewhat as it becomes preachy with the inevitable dialogue.

Nevertheless, the performances are quite good, especially those of Eikenberry and Leighton.

Lloyd Bridges gives a memorable but brief performance as the father who really never understood Tessa and now has to come to grips with what is occurring.
