Mrs. Winterbourne is A Winner ***1/2
13 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As she gets older, veteran actress Shirley Mac Laine just gets better and better.

In this wonderful 1996 film, Miss MacLaine portrays the mother of a son and daughter who are tragically killed in a train wreck. Since she never met her daughter-in-law, this will provide for the wonderful plot.

Ricki Lake is a young girl down on her luck. Finding herself pregnant from an abusive hoodlum-like boyfriend, the latter kicks her out when he discovers her condition. It is her good fortune to meet up with MacLaine's son and new daughter-in-law. She is in the train when it crashes and having just put on the dead woman's wedding ring, she is easily mistaken for MacLaine's new daughter-in-law.

When she gives birth to the baby, MacLaine is a grandmother! Lake soon finds her dead "husband's" brother (Brendon Fraser) as her love interest. Naturally, seeing Lake in the newspaper with her wealthy "family" brings back the boyfriend to do some blackmailing. The fun really starts when the boyfriend is murdered and some more surprises are revealed.

The cast is just perfect and the storyline is done well.
