I have to give it 4 stars to try and make up for that 1 star lame review from another reviewer, and also because I did enjoy the film, being a Cybill Shepherd fan I just had to watch it, though I almost didn't because of that 1 star review. It's a simple story about a family with major issues; one child who doesn't get along with her stepdad, the older daughter who's in an abusing relationship, an older son who's an alcoholic, and a mother (played by Cybill S.) who's trying to keep her family together and trying to support her clan as a lounge singer. I have to say that I enjoyed watching Ms. Shepherd in this film, it offered her the opportunity to showcase her singing talents which, to me, where quite impressive although I knew before watching this film that Ms. Shepherd is quite an accomplished singer with a few records under her belt, but I don't think I've heard her sing blues like she does in this film...I was pleasantly surprised. So, if you're a Shepherd fan I'm sure you'll enjoy watching her in this film as well as hearing her singing the blues. Enjoy!
I didn't have the patience to watch enough to write about the story. I couldn't even tell what the story was about or how the characters would evolve. Bratty kid, mom can't sing, all the trappings for an irritating movie experience.
