AKA: Here Comes The Son (in Australia)
11 January 1999 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews



Well, it was nice to see a movie about a mother who couldn't cope with having her child alone, but wasn't a bad mother, and a new father who didn't get everything right straight away.

Scott Bakula was perfect in the lead role as Jake Henry, unexpectedly the father of little Zack, who does his utmost to keep his son and also helps to sort out his ex-girlfriend's problems in the process.

This movie has a great story, is not overly sentimental, is often funny and touching, and is generally an all-round good movie to watch.
