Quotes

[first lines]
Danielle Steel - Presenter: Hello, I'm Danielle Steel. I'm happy you're here with us tonight for 'Changes'. It's a book about the mashing of two families. Bringing together a man and a woman, and their very different children isn't an easy thing to do, but Peter and Melanie meet the challenge well. I like them and their patchwork family and I hope you do too. I hope you enjoy watching 'Changes'.

I really enjoyed this movie, I am a Danielle Steel fan now!
19 January 2002 | by rainmonSee all my reviews

I thought that Cheryl Ladd was very good and the troubled little girl that played her stepdaughter did an excellent job. My only negative comment would be the male lead actor was a little week, but everyone else did a great job. Also, interesting to note, the little boy (about 8 or 9 years old) is now the teenage kid on 3rd rock from the Sun. This is a 3-4 Kleenex film.
