Nice Story About Father and Sons
17 October 2000 | by See all my reviews

This movie is not bad at all, not very good either though. At least you can learn about the bond between a father and his son who's been keeping a very dark secret. About how they finally accept each other for who they really are. Jason Behr from TV Series "Roswell" did a very good job in portraying one of the sons, with his very convincing acting. The director did a good job in presenting this one-night event movie without making it boring.
