Storyline

Michigan surgeon Steve Johnson has a happy family with shopkeeper Nathalie and their adoptive pre-teen son Evan. They want a second child, but neither the natural way nor VIF works, so they hope to adopt again. Their lawyer fails to get one and advises against Internet offers, but Nathalie insists to try at least one, from New York lawyer Gabor Szabo, offering penniless Hungarian Janka's daughter Gitta. Indeed he tries to auction her off, which isn't even illegal. New York cop Joey Perrotta failed to pose as candidate-adoptive father, but recruits the Johnsons for his legally shaky case. They accept although keeping Gitta is far from obvious. Written by KGF Vissers

Hated this film
26 November 2009 | by (New York City, NY) – See all my reviews

I agree with the comment about the stupidity of this movie. Why do we watch such trite? I think sometimes they are so bad you can't believe what you're watching. I like Hart Bochner's work. Loved him in Die Hard as the coke sniffing executive. He was wasted in this silly film. And the dame who played his wimpy wife looked like his mother. Dana Delany was terrible and obnoxious. I never wanted her to get the baby. She was too selfish a person to have any children. Going against her husband, the law to get her way. And nobody stops her. Even in the courtroom when she stands up and gives this phony speech about what's best for th child, it was sickening. I turned off the TV when the idiot judge was about to give over the child to her. I just don't want to see it. However, aside for my respect for Bochner's work, I did like the guy who played the shady dealer. Bruce Ramsay gave a decent performance. Almost like he was laughing through the whole movie.

So, kudos for Ramsay and Bochner's presence and thumbs down for the movie and the leading lady, Delany.
