Storyline

Tom Rosner is a successful lawyer, and a pretty good catch, but the unmarried state of her "Tommy" is his seriously sick mother Helen Rosner's greatest sorrow, so he lets her play matchmaker and dates girls she picks, usually to no avail. For once Tom is impressed with Jane Cronin, the nurse in his ma's daughter's office, but is wrong assuming she likes him. Helen arranges a second date, which convinces Jane, but now Tom is refusing to commit. Helen succeeds in making him change his mind by playing in to jealousy, then learns her cancer is back, and now terminally in her liver... Written by KGF Vissers

Mom the witty matchmaker
31 May 1999 | by (US) – See all my reviews

Helen, Olympia Dukakis (Mr. Holland's Opus, "Joan of Arc" (1999/III) (mini)) is a widow who had cancer. She is fun and witty and has group of old ladies that come to her house to play cards with her and they have fun. Della Reese (Touched by an Angel, Miracle in the Woods) Katie, is Helen's housekeeper and good friend who helped her to raise her kids. Kelly Rowan (Three to Tango) Jane is a dedicated nurse that Helen meets and decides that she is the one to marry her son Tom Rosner, John Stamos (The Marriage Fool). He is a family lawyer and listens to all his clients dirty laundry as they get divorced, and perhaps gets discouraged about marriage after listening all those sad tales. Helen is a really persistent matchmaker, who keeps making Helen and Tom run into each other. They go out, but Tom is not wanting to commit. With the help of Katie who keeps reminding Helen how stubborn and competitive he is, they almost get they together. But Helen's health decays and Tom is really sad goes to a bar and drinks, and a girl from the bar goes to his apartment. Jane goes to his apartment check on Tom, but runs into the girl from bar and gets really mad.

This just a sweet made for TV movie. I really enjoyed watching it. There are few good shows on television to be watched, that the high top television executives should produce more movies like this. If this movie is shown on TV again and if you have not seen it, take time to watch. The movie was not released on video. I recommend it, is a bitter sweet story!
