Storyline

Paul Jenks and his wife Sarah left California with their lovely son David and dumb daughter Ivy and started a farm in his native small town. Sarah is a short-tempered vegetarian, who doesn't really fit in the agricultural community. Sandy Barlow, a drifting accountant with shaky finances, envies their family happiness, worms her way in -as she does all over town-, fails to impress him with her female charms but pretends her aunt has the same hart disease as Sarah and asks the couple to spring her the money for an operation. When they answer they don't even have that much, everything is mortgaged, she swears revenge and takes it out on the whole family. Kristen Hadley, who didn't even finish her training in Social Services, buys the story Sandy gets five locals women to co-sign about child-abuse by Sarah, so the sheriff is send to take both young children away, and not just once for a day with Paul's parents...

This movie certainly "seduced" me!
9 November 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wow, that Laura Ingalls sure has grown up. She's left her little house on the prairie for a slightly bigger house on a prairie. This time she's a loving wife and loving mother to two wonderful kids. It seems she's got it all, until a drifter (the amazing Joely Fisher) rolls into town.

How do we know Joely Fisher is a no-good drifter? Why, she's smoking, of course. All drifters smoke.

Anyway, the drifter has her eye on Laura Ingalls' perfect life. She wants her husband, she wants their house, she wants their money. But hubby's got a thing for Miss Ingalls. He ain't going to stray. Piece of advice? Don't rebuff the advances of a drifter.

Joely gets upset, starts talking smack about Laura Ingalls and her husband. Says she's heard they've been smacking around their kids. Next thing you know, the Child Welfare people are knocking on the door and taking those kids away.

What follows next is about an hour of "Don't take away my babies!" screeching from Laura Ingalls. Does she get her kids back? Do you really care?

Stick around for the surreal ending, though.
