First let me state that I have never seen the prequel to this movie, "An Unexpected Family". This may have been why I was surprised by it--my expectations were based on the previews.
This was not a bad movie; but I do think it tried to do too much. With three storylines going on at once (Barbara's attitude toward her pregnancy and later, the baby, the reappearance of Matt and Megan's mom, and Sam's difficult relationship with his own mother), none of them got the attention they deserved. The story of Barbara's difficulties with motherhood would have made an excellent story if it had been developed to its potential.
That said, it had some very good moments, like when the judge got ticked off at the "adults" and kicked them out so he could talk to the kids, and when Barbara finally started to bond with her little girl.
