A good movie, but only tells part of the story
30 December 2003 | by alliesmom97See all my reviews

This is a pretty good TV movie about Gerri Jensen, who found ACES, an agency to help women get the child support they are due. It is based on a true story.

When Gerri's ex husband stops paying child support, Gerri's life and that of her two young sons becomes very hard.Circumstances finally evolve to the point where she seeks out other women having trouble collecting support and ends up "a movement"

This is NOT my original comment on this movie. In fairness, I had to edit it. I had read info on the ACES website that indicated that Gerri's ex-husband had continued his pattern of non support and done other really lousy things. Recently I was looking at the site again and noticed that particular section was gone. I did a little research and it appears that it is possible that Gerri's ex and his family are NOT as bad as this movie made them appear. Yes, it IS true that her ex did get behind in his support and it is true that this led to difficulties in her life and she did start ACES because the officials in charge wouldn't help her. However, there is evidence to indicate that Gerri is somewhat anti-father and that other statements she made about her ex were NOT true and that she attempted to thwart his attempts to have a relationship with him even when he was current with his support.
