I remember when this movie first came out, I was very anxious to go and see it. Unfortunately, neither my boyfriend or any of my friends showed any interest. Well, I finally caught it the other day on HBO Signature and it was so awful, I felt like calling my friends and thanking them for saving me the price of a movie ticket!
Shirley MacLaine was wonderful, but when isn't she? But even she didn't have enough screen time to save this dog. In my opinion, the miscast person here was Ricki Lake, I mean let's face it, she was way too old to play the young and innocent TEENAGE girl from NJ. When she met the future father of her baby and told him that she was only 18, I laughed out loud! Plus, there wasn't a drop of chemistry between them or between her and Brendan Fraser.
I don't think the script was very well-written either, the characters weren't fleshed-out enough and there were big gaping holes in the story. All in all I give this flick a "D".
