The idea was great....the finished product, however....
17 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I saw the trailer for this TV movie, I thought, "Ooh, that looks like it might be a good watch." The basic idea for this movie had potential. However, they didn't use it to the full advantage. Sure, this movie had it's moments, both cute and heart warming, but that's about it; the movie lacked substance. Normally, even if the premise for the movie is weak and even predictable, there's a quality to it that makes you keep wanting to watch and even come to care for the characters. This movie didn't have that something special; at least, not for me. I was disappointed, because I know that it could have been much better.

I gave this movie 5 out of 10 stars, mostly because even though it lacked in many things, it wasn't a completely horrible movie...It also wasn't the best either. My advice is, if you have to chose between this movie and something you've been impatiently waiting to see, go ahead and tape this one and save it for a Saturday when there's nothing else on to watch!
