Movie was so hard to find but now I have seen it again and remembered why I enjoyed it so much.

I felt the story was very disjointed.

Trying to give us the cozy feeling when every situation is so boring and bogged down only makes us feel 'good' when the movie is over.

Somehow as a kid, I found it engrossing, to be able to watch it every time it was on.

Next, I saw Romantic Comedy and thoroughly enjoyed it!

Everything seemed so banal, silly and contrived, it made the typical "Lifetime" flick, filmed in Canada, featuring a slew of Canadian actors, at perhaps 5% the cost of this film, seem believable and better-executed by comparison.

This was a waste of time, talent, and money.

Some critics saw this movie as tedious and contrived, and the first time I saw this movie, I agreed with them.

To imagine anybody treating his own family as he did, and then proceed to New York City, engaging in a smarmy, pseudo-sexual relationship with Moore - spurred-on by the precocious daughter, missed whatever "mark" the writers or director were seeking.

If you like predictable lifetime movies, otherwise skip .

Moore and Moore are both so bland, no chemistry, no fire in their performance.
