Storyline

Robert Portman lost his job, so he can't afford sufficient alimony for his ex, caterer Julie, and their adolescent kids, model student Michael and spoiled screwup Emma. The family pulls together when Emma is diagnosed with life-threatening cancer. Cultured fisherman George Tomich offers Julie true romance, but she gives priority to Emma and refuses to burden him when she's diagnosed with breast cancer herself, which she keeps secret by postponing her treatment until Emma has celebrated her graduation.

To Baldly Go......
10 September 2004 | by See all my reviews

Switching around channels to find a movie to help me sleep I had a choice between this one and "Ghost Cat"; assuming 'Two Against Time' might be a time travel adventure I opted for it: wrong choice.

As meritable as it might be to portray a story about a mother and daughter both diagnosed with cancer, which is the storyline here, I found the movie unconvincing and bland.

Quite apart from the irritating portrayal of a spoilt brat kid and her domineering mother which is later redeemed by their illnesses,this movie does a gross dis-service to people really suffering from cancer, since its'true pain and the pain of its treatment is almost non-existent in the film.

The do-gooder film-makers and actors seem to think that by showing bald headed women we are someone going to be shocked, but all this does is make a mockery of people who are really suffering.

"Ghost Cat"-which I have now seen, is far more honest!

2 out of 10.
