Weak TV-movie touches on difficult issues and then backs away...
Fifty-year-old businesswoman on the verge of retiring with her husband on his boat finds out she's pregnant, which puts all their plans on hold and causes the husband to reexamine his life. Patty Duke, looking and acting a lot older than fifty, has some choice moments playing this feisty woman determined at having a last fling at motherhood, but we don't get any sense of her priorities other than having this baby (she's either pinched or drawn in anger or a shoulder for everyone else to cry on). Husband Ronny Cox has a more complex character, but his doubts and insecurities--very relatable human qualities--are treated almost villainously. The narrative jumps around, opening up new wounds and bringing in new characters, but skimps on emotion. ** from ****
