When in the movie Doug writes on the window "I love you", he writes with the finger on the glass that is covered with steam, and it looks nice, but in fact when it's cold and the windows are covered with steam, the steam is always INSIDE the room, not outside. See more »
Although she seemed unique to me then, I now know that the world is filled with working women raising children by themselves. There was nothing especially original about my mother... not even in the way she finally brought her sons back together again.

Inventing the Abbotts (1997) is a pretty good story about life and lets a lot of young stars shine. Liv Tyler, Jennifer Connely, and the found again Joaquin Phoenix (who I haven't seen around since SpaceCamp) do a great job in their tough roles. This movie is not so bad at all, one I give a 7 out of 10. If you're cruisin' the channels, and can't find anything on but this, tune it in.
