Trivia

Jane's boss' name in this movie is Mr Jorkin. Ebenezer's Scrooge's boss' name is also Mr. Jorkin in the 1951 version of The Christmas Carol starring Alistar Sims. The name is too specific for this to be a coincidence. Obviously, this was a reference to the older movie. See more »

Symphony of clichés and stereotypes.
25 January 2004 | by (Illinois, U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Let's see, we have a workaholic overachiever who we just know is going to learn a big lesson about how she should want a husband and children because that is just the be-all, end-all of a woman's existence. Okay, it's not that sexist. But the way this TV movie goes about presenting the concept of a fulfilling personal life over career have barely a whiff of originality. The husband and kids, whether real or imagined, are so wholesome you just want to shoot them. But the absolute worst was a scene in which McKeon's character shows up at a get-together with four gay men, who are the gay version of minstrels. This cartoon-like depiction was the point at which I knew that there would be nothing redeeming about this. It's just another shameless plot line implying that a woman must choose between career and family. (Let's just say the suspense won't be killng you as to which lifestyle comes out on top.)
