Forever Love is a poignant new television movie about a woman who awakens from a 20-year-long coma and begins her life all over again.

Then, without warning, 24-year-old Lizzie suffers a stoke. At the hospital, doctors tell Alex that his young wife has slipped into a deep coma and there is nothing to do but wait to see if she comes out of it. Alex, determined to keep his vow to love Lizzie in sickness and in health, decides to bring her home and take care of her. Alex is helped and consoled by Gail, Lizzie's best friend. Gail not only offers a loving friendship to Alex, she fills in for Lizzie with young Emma as well. When Gail's husband is killed in a car crash, Alex, Gail and Emma form a de facto family unit of their own until, 20 years after her stroke, Lizzie wakes up. Miraculously, Lizzie is pronounced perfectly healthy and begins ... Written by Anonymous

This is an AWESOME movie!!!
3 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OK, Forever Love is terrific! Even though i only see it twice a year because thats the only times I see it on television. Reba plays a great character. She is trapped in a coma for a really long time, and when she wakes up, everything is different. It gets very interesting as the movie gets deeper in the story. I give it 10 stars, and i find it to be Reba's best movie, even though i have only seen 2 of them. But it is my all time favorite movie, and if you love Reba as a singer, you will love her as an actress as well!!! So don't hesitate to watch this movie, it is the greatest movie in my book, and everyone deserves a chance to see it. If you ever DO get the chance to see it, whether or not you are a Reba McEntire fan, watch it. It totally rules
