Storyline

This movie is a very compelling love story that is hidden underneath the stress of raising a child who has mental instability. In this particular movie I found it amazing how well they portrayed a young boy who had lost almost all functional parts of his brain due to a near drowning accident. His parents fight throughout most the movie about conflicting views of how to raise their son, until one day a plane comes through their roof. The couple inside the plane (Pepper Upper & Mr. Moody) are almost like angels to the family. They make their valentines day, a day the Bridges family will not forget. The stranded couple force the stressed parents to come to copes with each other and their son and help them to see how to enjoy their lives again. In the end the parents fight about whos fault the accident was and then realize it was both of theirs and they are able to overcome this obstacle. Then the young boy Andy asks through his artwork to be taken to a special school for children with ... Written by Stephmonster

.....and fell flat on it's face.
20 July 2004 | by Mikee-MollischSee all my reviews

Wow! I can't believe I could ever be bored enough to sit through this picture in it's entirety. Nearly every line of dialogue seemed to drop on the floor, as this picture seemed to be trying to emulate the quirky charm of a small independent film,

but it was more like torture. I'm afraid I've stunted my development by making it half way !

While there might have been a redeeming ending, had I been able to suffer through it . . . . . I couldn't, with the lame dialogue, hugely awkward silences, and complete lack of flow to it. The supposedly romantic "How (Lloyd) & (Bleeth) Met" story was stupendously bad. I couldn't begin to find Lloyd or Bleeth right for their parts. A talented director might be able to decide whether this was supposed to be funny, or sad, or dramatic . . . but to me it was just AWKWARD drivel.

  • This may be the worst TV movie I've ever seen. . . . what were they thinking ?
