Storyline

Frances Mackenzie is a Canadian junior copy editor in New York, but lands the account of her favorite author, Michael Tate, who finds her honesty fascinating. Just after her boyfriend Calvin Puddie started a six month tour as a jazz musician, she learns to be pregnant. Having neglected to prolong her visa, Frannie is stuck with her parents in Canada after a visit. Just when she started to despair, Calvin returns and proves a wonderfully supportive father, both before and after the birth of their son, but leaves when she fails to affirm being in love...

loved it!!!
1 May 2006 | by (Guam) – See all my reviews

I loved the movie and enjoyed every part of it! Playing House made me have a reality check! Life isn't complete without love and love isn't anything without those you want in it. Everyone makes mistakes, but like Frannie, you can correct them to have a happy ending. Calvin and Frannie are great people but even greater and wonderful being as soulmates!! They completed each other and their baby completed their life. I not a fan of most lifetime movies, but I'm very glad that I stopped pushing the numbers on my remote, and stopped to watch it! It shouldn't be so much about what isn't in the movie, but what the movie is about and stands for!
