Storyline

Living in the small town of Storm Lake, married upper middle class couple Robert and Sarah Benson faced a life changing incident five years ago when a freak accident led to a then pregnant Sarah, an organic hobby farmer, losing the baby and not being able to conceive children anymore. Feeling guilty for not fixing their broken dock which caused the accident, Robert, an author of personal financial management self help books, took to the bottle, although he has now been sober for six months. Robert dotes on their only child, six year old Sully, and constantly worries about her diabetic condition. They are pursuing adoption as Sarah believes another child would bring a much needed balance into their lives, especially in getting Robert out of his funk. He has been in this state specifically since his last book tour, about which he does not remember much due to his drinking and hard partying. They believe they have finally found the perfect adoption mother in Bridgette Gibson, a young ... Written by Huggo

Great tribute for Lifetime's 25th anniversary
20 June 2015 | by See all my reviews

After much speculation it turned out the movie wasn't at all a comedy/parody, although some moments could've been interpreted in a funny way(the garage door opening being one of them), it is actually a Lifetime tribute with essential elements of their movies that have been popular with its audience: a life-altering accident, a fresh start after couple of months/years(it occurs twice in perfect sync at the beginning and ending of the movie), alcoholic husband, naive partner/wife, dark past that gets everyone in trouble, a crazy ex-lover, best friend who knows too much for his own good, phone that stops working in a crucial moment, police getting involved all too late, saving the day ending and lets not forget the classic handgun shooting happening between almost all characters in a row.

For a Lifetime casual fan this will a great movie of their beloved genre full with all the dramatic bits that they enjoyed throughout the years involving 2 A+ listed actors who attracted attention, in order to celebrate their 25th anniversary of hilarious clichés.

For non-lifetime viewers this will be a new and enjoyable experience which they could find funny in some scenes given the 2 comedy Gods involved in it, but you need to have seen at least 1 Lifetime movie to understand the replicated elements that are included in this anniversary. Its not a parody per-se because they didn't had to exaggerate the already overly-dramatized bits which are usually found in Lifetime movies and which some of their casual viewers find hilarious, its simply a replication of those but bunched together in a single movie.

10/10
