25 February 2003 | by allylmSee all my reviews

In this movie Melissa Gilbert and Tim Matheson have great chemistry onscreen which brings the movie to life.All the cast bring humour to the movie.I am a fan of both Melissa and Tim so when i saw it was going to be on i knew it was going to be good but it turned out to be great.This movie had everything you could expect from a Melissa movie.I taped it and have now watched it many times,i am hoping to find it on video/dvd somewhere as i feel i am wearing the video i have it on out!!Any who hasnt seen it should,it is great.
