Pure corn but a good watch for family hour
5 March 2001 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

"Running Home" is a predictable, melodramatic flick full of implausibilities with all the ear marks of a low budget soap. However, there's enough stuff going on from romance to murder to bad cops to fights to chases to the quest of the street kid and central character (Ayre) to meet the birth mother he's never known to make it an enjoyable watch for those who can overlook the host of contrivances it presents. Also, Ayre is just off-center enough to support the multitude of clichés around him. In short, an enjoyable watch for the whole family in spite of many short-comings.
