A wonderful made-for-television movie
Saw this the night it premiered on television and a couple of repeats a few years later. Kristy McNichol had star persona written all over her so you knew this was going to be good and it was.
I haven't seen this movie in about 25 years now. Why it's never shown on television I don't know why. But both Kristy and Linda Lavin are excellent as mother and daughter, and if memory serves me correctly, Kristy throws one of her famous fits when her mom finds a guy she doesn't approve of.
The person who didn't find Lavin and McNichol convincing in their roles probably would have preferred seeing Stan Laurel in a dress and Milton Berle playing Kristy's part. Remember folks, it's all just a matter of opinion.
