11 December 2005 | by mastbradpedSee all my reviews

I saw this with friends and, although it is a serious story, I remember we just laughed our heads off in some scenes because it was just so hokey. Meredith calling herself "Baby Lady" was just hysterical. I know it's nothing to laugh at but it came across that way and not dramatic at all.

I remember the child was a good actor in this movie though. Still, I love Meredith, dating back to "Family", so I can't totally dis this movie.

I haven't seen it since it came out but would probably want to see it again, since it's been awhile.
