Fairly predictable fare, stranger enters the lives of a disfunctional family and the experience unites all.
TxMike22 October 2000
I was looking forward to this "made for TV" movie, Songs in Ordinary Time, because I like both main actors - Sissy Spacek and Beau Bridges. And both of them turn in fine performances. Also, my wife told me the book had been on Oprah's list.

However, I waited for something touching to happen, but it never did. Fairly predictable, drifter enters a family of divorced mom with 3 children, appears to be the answer to her prayers, things get suspicious. A brief love scandal with the local priest is thrown in, actually fits with the story.

Overall, I gave it 7 for this type of movie, but all-in-all pretty forgettable fare.
