Sweet and sensitive portrayl of parenthood...
26 September 2001 | by AllisonLVenezioSee all my reviews

I first saw this movie on Lifetime during a Father's Day marathon this year. I have only seen Scott Bakula in clips from movies, never in anything else, so I didn't know what to expect.

What it turns out is to be a very enjoyable film. Jake Henry (Bakula) is a swinging single male, living the way he ants, with no worries...that is, until Jamie, an old flame, shows up with a baby name Zachary, who Jamie claims is Jake's. He somehow charms Zach's stuffy, uptight social worker, and he gains custody of his son. But, there's another problem: A man shows up with Jaime to claim Zachary, but Jake just isn't willing to give Zach up. What will he do?

Scott Bakula is very charming in this role, as Jake, he must take care of an infant son by himself. By looking at his face, you can see he is so happy to have this child. Although there's responsibilities, Jake isn't willing to let anything affect his parenting, not even his job.

Favorite scene: The pre-custody interview: I won't give it away, but trust me, it's very funny. Of course, this is a wonderful film that any dad could appreciate. This is also one of those films that health teachers could show their students about parenthood. See this wonderful film, you certainly won't regret it.
