Non-emotional
28 October 1999 | by (Illinois) – See all my reviews

This is the sequel to An Unexpected Family, without the depth and emotion of the first movie. This time, Barbara is dealing with a new baby she doesn't want, the hatred between her lover and his mother, and her sister who wants her kids back. Unconvincing, boring at times, and predictable. They should have left well enough alone. There are some movies that don't need a sequel!!
