Storyline

TV presenter Will Chaney is as cute as they get and a dear devoted daddy to his pre-teen son Benjamin 'Ben'. Alas the somewhat shy, confused boy is the only good thing that came out of Will's marriage. Under divorce custody rules Will picks up Ben at Denver airport at the start - and near tears drops him off again at the end of every major school holiday. There Will meets divorcée Jane, who similarly picks up and drops off her daughter. Both good, involuntarily part-time parents hold back dating to spare their kids another traumatic break-up. Luckily their best friends, Will's cameraman Charlie and Jane's sister Georgia, encourage them to go out together. Once Ben gets used to the situation, at last saying 'dad' instead of Will, he gives his crucial blessing, even picks Jane over the only other date dad presented to him, so exit Maddie. Finally Will considers a bold move, which however is probably detrimental to his first shot at promotion from weatherman to news-desk presenter, as ... Written by KGF Vissers

The cutest romantic comedy film ever made for Television!
30 October 2004 | by (Tel Aviv, Israel) – See all my reviews

The movie is about a divorced dad who only gets to have his kid for holidays, and a divorcée mom who always have to send her daughter to her dad at holidays. they meet at the airport, but the love story doesn't begin until a year and a half later. It shows a realistic POV on divorced parents, with a fantastic romance in between. Scott Wolf is adorable even if he doesn't really look like a father. and the woman is gorgeous. everything that can go wrong in this story - goes wrong. it doesn't matter if the end is predictable because you have so much fun watching them fall in love. I give it a 5 out of 5, keeping in mind of course thats its a TV flick.
