based on a true story!
14 May 2003 | by (boston) – See all my reviews

that's right. i think i saw something similar to this on dateline. anyway, this is my mother's favorite made-for-tv movie, she taped it off of lifetime. it's a big tearjerker, but probably moreso for people who were actually in college more than 20 years ago.

i must admit that that perry king is one smooth operator. and that lindsay wagner has honed her role as tv movie queen. i'd give it maybe 7 stars.
