Average TV Movie. Good cast.
I usually rate an average film 5/10, but Conchata Farrell's presence in the film gives it an extra star. Although not a bad film, the cheesy music and predictable dialogue don't help, as much as hinder. Patty plays a supposedly overweight (she was hardly that) woman, who is trying to cope with her weight and marriage struggles. I think this could have been an excellent telefilm if it wasn't so heavy handed--and a better script couldn't have hurt. You have almost everyone in the film telling Patty's character, Carole, she is overweight. I suppose this was done so the viewer would believe it. Well, not this viewer. Patty was too svelte, that even with some lame padding she barely looked 5-10 lbs. overweight. I know there was a good point to this film, but with all the other "stuff" the true meaning gets lost in it. Thankfully, Patty made some other fine films, this is more of a curiosity piece with a good cast.
