This is a great tale of a married couple getting back together but be warned, if you are in a similar situation and your child is watching this show and your child wants you to get back together with your spouse, this is going to open a lot of wounds for your child. As we all know, not all marriages can be saved and if yours can’t, your child is going to feel the grief all over again if they want you back together again. Aside from that, I would have felt more comfortable watching if the pastor wasn’t quite so young (as in close to Laura’s age) and good looking. For a minute, I thought Laura was going to end up with the pastor who married her and Dylan.… weird. And the casting isn’t great. Laura looks so old (or Dylan looks so young) it was like she is Dylan’s mother. Weird pairing. The little girl though is luminous, what a beautiful child and such amazing acting. She broke my heart when she cried. We adults really need to start doing better for our children.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (2 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Message-driven with a charmingly natural performance by Kirstin Dorn as Kelsey, the film never transcends its reliance on by-the-numbers cliches, unsound plotting, and contrived situations. It's a well-meaning, if incompetent film. The messages are simplistic: ranch life is idyllic; big cities are impersonal and materialistic; divorce is never to be taken lightly.

It appears that the filmmakers made easy choices based on convenience rather than logic. The courtroom scenes, headed by a judge (Catherine Hicks with the only Southern accent on display and a terrible one at that) can't be taken seriously. A ludicrous but pivotal plot premise is that no one could afford plane trips for Kelsey's visits to Dylan despite his considerable ranch restoration, his new business, and Laura's high level bank job. Still, for families who like neat, happy endings, cute animals and pretty scenery, and at least one feisty little girl may find it an acceptable time-filler.
