Predictable but sweet
2 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a very sweet, romantic movie but oh so predictable. A successful woman Chris, (Jane Seymour) raises her nephew after the untimely death of her pregnant sister Shelly. The father of the child is unknown. Years later Chris finds a letter written by Shelly and she mails it to the father, Mason, never expecting what would happen next. A custody battle ensues and the child, who is now about 8 or so suggests to the judge that the best way to settle this dispute is to have Mom and "Dad" marry.

Seymour and James Brolin were very good in their roles and it was a refreshing change from most of the drivel out there in TV land where graphic images of murdered & autopsied bodies seems to be the newest thing.

If you like romance novels you will definitely enjoy this movie. If you're a guy you will most likely hate it. I like feel good movies and this one did that for me.
