Storyline

Keith and Becki Dilley fail to get pregnant naturally. Just when they despair at the last fertility treatment they can afford, quintuplets are diagnosed. At the birth, a sickly sixth son is found. Raising them proves even harder, juggling domestic matters, financial and practical help, especially from the grandparents, which leads to tensions. Keith gives up his job and blood proves thicker then water. Written by KGF Vissers

Good performances, decent acting
27 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I didn't plan on watching this but I stumbled across it and couldn't turn it off. It is an interesting story and I could relate to the sadness of the grandmother's illness. But the fact that the other grandmother (Doris) is portrayed as the opposite of how she apparently really is makes this difficult to watch.

I don't mind a few dramatic additions to a story to help it along, but when you take a real life person and portray them as evil for the sake of a more interesting story, that's just wrong. Its not necessary and is certainly unfair.

But I was able to watch it while keeping in mind it was fantasy.
