Our Score
Three couples deal with pregnancy, adoption and infertility in this weepie based on the Danielle Steel romantic novel. The plot is predictable, but the TV-based cast gives its all, and there are some top-notch performances from ex-Happy Days star Scott Baio, St Elsewhere's Bruce Greenwood and Baywatch's Alexandra Paul. Meanwhile, director Bethany Rooney makes sure every moment is a three-hanky one, which is hardly surprising when you consider her previous output includes other Danielle Steel melodramas, Dr Quinn: Medicine Woman and Touched by an Angel.


Three couples contemplating parenthood each encounter difficulties. Andy and Diana struggle to conceive, forcing them to consider other options, Charlie wants to be a father but his wife Beth is unconvinced, while Brad and his younger spouse Pilar have a difficult relationship with his daughter from a previous marriage. Drama, starring Bruce Greenwood and Gabrielle Carteris.
