Not a bad TV movie!
17 December 2001 | by (New York City, NY) – See all my reviews

I was pleasantly surprised that this film had the substance it did. I'm sure this is due to a good screenplay by Nina Shengold and direction by Michael Switzer. The story of a young man, played wonderfully by Brian Austin Green [who also was part of the production company] who had a baby left on his doorstep by his girl friend, played by Nicholle Tom. Not knowing the first thing about raising babies, Green begins to learn how to not only take care of his son, but begins to fall in love with the child. Then as you would expect the girl friend wants her baby back. What makes this a good film, is the honesty of Green's performance, and the coming of age of both parents. I felt Nicholle Tom was a bit too one level in her portrayal. She could have used a bit more depth in her work. However, she did have a few moments that were quite convincing. For instance, her scene with her friend who took her in and tried to warn her about Green's intentions. If there were to be a villain in this piece, I would say her friend would be it. A very hard hearted performance. I really liked Isabella Hofman in this. Playing the girl's mother, she was quite believable and interesting to watch. All in all, not a bad attempt. I like Green more and more. Having seen him in several good films. I give this charmer an 8+ out of 10. Congratulations, Brian, on your choice and support of this movie.
