Perfect 6.

I saw the movie for Mary Mc Donnell. She's o-k.

It maybe fitting for the book it's based upon, Replacing Dad does not, however, fit the movie. It's about how she deals with her husband of sixteen years leaving her for another woman and only slightly about her coping with new men in life and her children's reaction to their mom's dating and dates.

There are great little moments: Linda's submissiveness to her husband, the grandmother's reaction when Willie answers the phone- devoured by just-bad parts: grandmother not running after her grandson's footprints, and what she says to her self at the time; Why does Linda say "I lied" when they get to the New Year Eve's party? A little sentence about Linda's complaint to the police wouldn't have hurt. Story-wise, there could easily have been another half hour.

I've never seen Dynasty, Jack Coleman is really good here. Hayden Tank as Willie in the bunny suit is absolutely adorable. And Tippi Hedren looks great for her age. Did she have any work done on her?
