Horrible and Completely Lacking Taste
18 August 1999 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

This was an incredibly bad made for television movie. One of the worst I have seen. It was the only film of its genre(TV) that I have shut off because of how upset it made me. Let me elaborate. I was DEEPLY offended by the way Ellie suggested that her son may now be bisexual, due to the abuse. Words cannot express how bowled over and livid I became after hearing that. I mean, how mis-represented and homophobic is that? No one is "turned" bi or gay because they are molested or raped. This is a truly worthless production.
