It's Got John Travolta, But It's SO Corny

Yes, Mr. Travolta gives a good early performance here, but the film is too made-for-TV-movie-ish (yes, I understand that it was.) Though it teaches acceptance and there are some dramatically tense scenes, the dialogue too often falls flat and the film devolves into a maudlin fare. And I don't mind unusual (in fact I kind of love it in a film) but this is just a little too odd to be any good. Not awful, but certainly not terrific.
