Goofs

Millie Dunbar drive a wasted Volvo 760 estate . It is very hard to believe, what a car debuted in 1985, can be in such condition in 1991. Also, it is probably too expensive for main character, even if car was made in 1985. See more »

User Reviews

A huge disappointment
19 August 2018 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This film tells the story of a foster mother with many foster children, around the time of riots in 1991.

With two A List stars, one would expect this film to be good. As it turned out, I am left hugely disappointed. The film features constant screaming children, screaming adults and screaming everyone. There is not a time when characters aren't screaming. That alone turns me off the film completely. The story is not really going anywhere either.
