Our Score
It's Beaches all over again, as best pals Lindsay Wagner and Shelley Long learn to laugh, cry, love and generally get all gooey in the face of heart-rending trauma. The trouble with movies like this is that there's a fine line between poignant drama and sickly melodrama, and here that line is unfortunately crossed. Both Wagner and Long do well with their respective roles, but there is only so much hugging one movie can take. Watch only with a box of chocolates and a pack of man-sized tissues.

Summary

Sculptor Holly discovers she has only six months left to live, and seeks out her old friend Kate for help. Kate walks away from her demanding career to care for Holly in her last six months, but takes on an even bigger responsibility when she agrees to adopt Holly's daughter when she is dead. Drama, starring Shelley Long, Lindsay Wagner and Molly Orr.
