Storyline

It may sound like a fairy tale, being born as son of the murdered JFK, the most 'regal' US President ever, but for John 'John-John' Kennedy, it's a burden. When he becomes an Assistant D.A., the press is all over him, flunking one exam gets smeared all over the national press, wherever he goes people point at him, recognizing face and/or name, but hardly notice what he actually does. His mediatic mother Jacqueline Kennedy-Onassis pushes him, stifles him, forbids him to become an actor or won't hear of him dating an actress, then dies herself. Finally the legendary Kennedy curse, which never skipped a generation, chooses him to be the victim of an airplane accident... Written by KGF Vissers

Not a particularly well acted biopic.
12 January 2003 | by (Boston, Massachusetts) – See all my reviews

This made for TV movie factually stays true to form, but gives way in the acting and presentation department. It was a mix of biographical acting and silly dramatic comments by people who knew or wanted to know the protagonists.

They did find actors who resembled the underlying people moderately well, but the actresses leave something to be desired. The "Breaking News" and news interview type scenes detracted from the rest of the movie, but some of it was necessary to detail the events. Overall for TV movies it doesn't stand out.
