User Reviews

Genie and Leigh's chemistry was great!

This was a good movie, not the best but I enjoyed it very much. Marcy and Genie were incredible together, Marcy so believable as a nut and Genie so desperate to be a good mother. I cannot tell you how many soap stars are in this show. Everywhere I looked I was like, "Ooh, isn't she on..." and I couldn't think of which soap! Leigh and Genie did a fabulous job of being so in love which is ironic to me since they were both working on General Hospital at that time where Laura (Genie) was on trial for murdering Damian (Leigh) by bashing him in the head with a baseball bat and lighting him on fire! These two are fabulous together, loving parents and very loyal and protective.

This movie had a great ending!
