I'd love to see that again starring Amy Jo Johnson ...
28 June 2004 | by IMDBmurphySee all my reviews

Rated this one 8/10, which for me is absolutely exceptionally as a TV movie rating, but it was well written (consequent ending), well directed (not too pathetic, as otherwise usual) and played more serious and substantial than the mainstream TV stuff.

I liked Swoosie Kurtz and especially John Ashton as the parents, showing how perceptions can change during the development of a storyline surely being found like this in many, many average family environments.

Courtney Peldon did a good job as well – but as I said above, I wonder what the marvelous Amy Jo Johnson has made out of it in Perfect Body (1997) (TV).
