    Has an unforgettable artery of hot-blooded talent coursing straight through it.
  2. Too many clichés and too much uneven acting dilute its impact.
  3. Kinsella, in his feature debut, milks cliches, caricatures and an unlikely set of coincidences to tie things up in a neat bundle.
  4. Essentially a downscale TV movie about spousal and child abuse.

    Simply exhausting; it wants to be funny and sad and lighthearted and serious all at once.

    The picture is stronger the closer it sticks to the streets and raw emotions and the more it avoids routine dramatic crutches and forced comedy.
  7. A modest but engaging mixture of comedy and drama that derives most of its energy from the performance of Callie Thorne.
  8. 20
    Child abuse, domestic violence, and the struggles of single mothers deserve better treatment than this.
