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

Display of a tender relationship between a mother and her son.
15 December 2006 | by (Noctropolis) – See all my reviews

Oh this is a truly enjoyable direct for t.v. movie. I'd also add "tender" as an adequate adjective for this movie.

I don't remember when was the last time I watched it but it was probably around 2000 and 2001 on Warner Channel.

John Stamos once again demonstrates his histrionic qualities and delivers a solid, tender performance. Mrs. Olympia Dukakis also delivers a tender, moving performance.

I really dug the chemistry between Stamos and Dukakis. Both seemed to get along very well and at the same time portray a moving relationship between a care loving mother and a hard working, noble son.

This is a movie to watch with the family if you are in the mood of just watching it and then forgetting about it.
