Disappointing family fare
8 December 2002 | by (Tampa, Florida) – See all my reviews

I usually know how good or bad a picture is within the first fifteen minutes and this return of Mary Tyler Moore to the small screen was no exception. The tip off? The little girl playing her niece Travis. I say 'little girl' as opposed to 'actress' because if this child's abrasive, one-dimensional performance is any indication, the wonderful Dakota Fanning ("I Am Sam", "Taken") will have nothing to worry about come her next casting call.

In fact, the only actor who gives a really decent performance here is Irma P. Hall as Charlie Robinson's mother, Miss Rose. She is warm and all-knowing, and having worked for ice queen Lettie Anderson's family for 75 years, she knows a lot of family secrets. Nothing too profound, mind you -- did I mention that Dalene Young's script is incredibly boring? I kept waiting for Lettie to really lose her cool and smack that snotty kid upside the head; I also found Robinson irritating in his nonstop upbeat attitude.

If you're looking for a well-acted family drama set in the south, stick to the likes of "My Dog Skip".
