Goofs

The opening scenes at the amusement park is set in the 1960's, however a modern steel track coaster (painted red) is seen in several shots. Steel track coasters were not introduced until the mid 1970's and were not common until the 1980's. See more »

Much better than I expected
24 July 2002 | by (Irving, TX) – See all my reviews

Given that this was shown on CBS Sunday Night (after Tetched by an Angel) and co-starred Della Reese, I was expecting a treacly schmaltz-fest. In fact, the only reason I watched it was all the other networks preempted their regular programming. I was pleasantly surprised. Joanna Kerns was her usual quietly likeable, effective self, and Harley Kozak was as good as ever. While the "very special" (meaning stickily sentimental) plot elements were present as expected, the viewer was not drenched in pathos like would normally happen with this sort of movie. The whole affair was understated and entertaining.
