Poor script, great movie
19 May 2000 | by Cookie24See all my reviews

Okay, so what can you expect from the USA network? Still, the idea was great and the storyline was good. I think the script, however, should have been better written. There's too much talking and not enough doing. You have to pay close attention to the words or you could miss details that they don't show you. The movie does jump a lot in the beginning. One second, the Cordells are in a clinic and in the next scene, she's miraculously pregnant. Sit tight and tape it if possible so when you say, 'What?' at a scene, you can just rewind it. All in all it's a good movie, especially about ten minutes from the ending. Strong performance by Heidi Swedberg, no longer the youthful and cocky Susan Ross from Seinfeld that we know and love. Also, congrats to little Jacob Smith. He was great at playing the part of Adam. See it when it comes on again.
