Editorial Reviews

Jess Gradwell (Gail O Grady, Desperate Housewives, NYPD Blue) is a divorced mother with a high-stress job and teenage daughter. A hard-working paralegal who strives to be a lawyer one day, Jess juggles the pressures of her parenting and professional lives with grace and agility.

Meanwhile, her 15-year-old daughter, Sara (Danielle Panabaker), is dealing with the pressure of being sexually inexperienced in a world of sexually active teenagers. Jess tries to convince her daughter to abstain from sex until she is in love, but Sara has her heart set on dating the high school bad boy and changing her goody-two-shoes image. So when Mom, who has been vigilantly preaching the importance of responsible sex, ends up pregnant after a brief encounter with a handsome pediatric surgeon, the mother-daughter dynamic shifts dramatically, causing a chain of events that will either break the bond Jess and Sara once shared, or bring them closer together than ever before.

Usually, in stories like this, a teenage girl gets careless, becomes pregnant, and has to hide it from her mother. But here, it's the mother who gets careless, becomes pregnant, and has to hide it from her daughter! The aforementioned (single) mother has been discouraging her teenage daughter from becoming sexually active, while carrying on a wild, secret affair with a married man. When she becomes pregnant and her lover abandons her, she has to face her own hypocrisy. This film is a cut above most made-for-Lifetime-TV movies, thanks largely to Gail O'Grady's performance as the mother - she's always luminous and likable, even when some might question her behavior. Credit must also go to Danielle Panabaker as the daughter.

This is one of my favorite all-time "Lifetime" movies. Grant Show is HOT, HOT, HOT! My only complaint is that they haven't come out with the sequel on DVD yet, but I have it saved on my DVR while I wait for it. Gail O'Grady is a good actress also, and you can feel the chemisty between the two of them in this movie. This is one movie that I never get tired of! Thanks Grant! :)

Like mother, like daughter? When it comes to romance, single mom Jess Gradwell and her 15-year-old daughter Sara may have a lot more in common than they think. Intrigued by a hunky heart surgeon, Jess falls hard into a possibly unwise affair.

At the same time, Sara is discovering her own longings and perhaps acting unwisely about a boy at school. Emotions are on edge in the Gradwell household. Jess and Sara clash over sexuality and morality. Then Jess makes a decision that will change both of them forever.

I just watched the movie - sex and the single mom. Some good life lessons in the storyline. I want some help with part of a song that is played during a romantic scene between the two main characters. It's about 35 minutes into the movie and plays for about 35-40 seconds. There is no listing in the credits apart from the person who wrote the music. Can anyone help me find this music, what it's called and who sings it. It's very haunting. Thanks Monika

I really enjoyed watching this movie on Lifetime Movie Network and was happy that I could buy it from Amazon. Amazon products always come in good condition and I have always bought from you'll in the past. Keep up the good work.

Best regards,
