Two teenage girls must come to terms with their stepfather when their mother is struck by illness. Stars Elizabeth Perkins, Scott Bakula.
Actress Elizabeth Perkins ("About Last Night...," "He said, She said") gives a bravura performance as "Mama," a quirky, eccentric single mother raising two daughters who are entering their awkward, trying teenage years. As their mother, provider, teacher and best friend, Mama shares with them her zest for life, in which the unconventional and unexpected are always just around the corner. "Normal," she claims, "is rather dull." But, true to form, there's one surprise she's neglected to tell her daughters: she has been carrying on a long-distance romance with Nick (Scott Bakula, "American Beauty," TV's "Enterprise") and had decided to uproot the family and move them from rural Georgia to Nick's home in Long Island, New York. And while her daughters struggle with the sudden addition of a new "Father" into their lives, there is yet another abrupt, startling revelation from Mama -- one that forces everyone to confront love, pain, loss and, ultimately, acceptance.

It's a beautiful movie, beautiful story.
A little bit sad, but I like it very much.
Buy it if you like to see a young Kyle Schmid
and an handsome Scott Bakula.:)
Scott Bakula is great in this and the rest of the cast, especially the oldest daughter, are also outstanding. A great family movie.Published on November 18, 2003 by J. Fox
