Storyline

Just when her sister and her fiancé are planning to sell their late father's North Carolina farm, philanderer Frannie Vaughn, whom they couldn't even reach for the funeral, returns. She prevents the sale and flippantly decides to turn it into a pig farm, without any know-how. Meanwhile she makes life livelier and harder for anyone in the factory where her sister gets her a job she soon messes up, but thus finds a partner in foreman Ruben, standing by him when disaster strikes.

Pleasant enough diversion...
22 November 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Farrah Fawcett has spent the better part of her post-Angel's career confounding us, with an occasional noteworthy acting performance sandwiched in between her Playboy frolics and Letterman escapades. But when it comes down to it, there's no denying that this girl can act. Far from a story of epic proportions, this well-done TV-movie is gentle, quiet and occasionally moving. Fawcett plays the wayward black sheep daughter come home only to find that she missed the last days of her mom's life as well as the funeral, much to the chagrin of her more stable and presumably more sensible sister. Brad Johnson plays the love interest, and a story unfolds with all the typical elements of telefilm drama- but then there's always that confounding Farrah to watch, and she does, indeed, remain eminently watchable. (And, yes, I admit it, I did have that Farrah poster on my wall way back when). Silk Hope gets three and a half stars (out of five) on the Corkymeter. Bosley would be proud.
