Another family struggle
20 May 2001 | by harleypassionSee all my reviews

Pretty sad story with the dad trying to gain custody of his youngest son. Later he finds out that the boy isn't really his, but he still fights for him. This is tough for the kid as he gets confused, and his mother gets married again and complicates matters. With such a title, it should be based on a true story. I hope the real Larry Jr. has come out from this ordeal, STRONG.
