TV legend Jaclyn Smith
10 July 2016 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Kay Woodbury (Jaclyn Smith) is a no nonsense workaholic San Diego judge. Troubled foster kid Sally Powell (Lyndsy Fonseca) comes before her court. Her foster parents terminate foster care. With nowhere to go, Kay sends her to juvenile corrections facility. Kay's ex-husband David Woodbury (Corbin Bernsen) is getting remarried. She's estranged from her father over a case she presided over. Case worker Miranda (Sarah Aldrich) pleads for Sally. Kay decides to be her temporary guardian while she's on her yearly three weeks recess. Sally is having nightmares and Kay asks her neighbor psychiatrist Dr. Michael Katsu for help. Sally steals Kay's jewelry and plans to runaway with her boyfriend Pete Smalling to San Francisco. It's not enough and he tells her to steal more. Kay discovers the identity of Sally's father James Powell (C. Thomas Howell) and hires him for landscaping.

This is a Hallmark movie. The story is pretty much lots of personal melodrama. The production is mostly TV movie level. The most compelling aspect in this is Jaclyn Smith. It's always nice to see this TV legend. She has aged very well. There's a younger Lyndsy Fonseca doing a good job as the moody troubled teen. This is basically what you expect from a Hallmark TV movie and nothing more than that.
