Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

The Fabulous Baker Boys brought Beau Bridges and brother Jeff together on the big screen, but this TV movie (directed by Beau) seems to feature the whole Bridges clan, including father Lloyd, mother Dorothy, and Beau's own son Jordan. It's a slightly sickly, but sweet tale of a boy who becomes rather attached to the goose he's supposed to be fattening up for Thanksgiving, so expect lots of cute close-ups of the starring goose, and some heart-wrenching (and sometimes stomach-turning) family moments. Younger children will probably like it, and older viewers should note an early appearance (pre-Melrose Place and Ally McBeal) by Courtney Thorne-Smith.
