| Well done for the day!
Meredith Baxter Birney moonlights from her sitcom gig as Elyse Keaton to play Kate, a suburban mother, housewife, and bulimic. This film was well-done on the topic. It shows how a normal person like Kate could eat and binge before self-induced vomiting out in the sink or toilets. I remember watching her going to the store and eating everything in sight and hiding it from her family only to vomit later and say something like something didn't agree with me. When she's caught, she's got to go to rehab and face her bulimia. She does give a good performance as Kate. Baxter was known to moonlight in television movies during her Family Ties years. She wasn't the only one. I always loved watching familiar faces pop up when I least expect it and knowing them from somewhere else. It's a shame that NBC doesn't make movies anymore or comedies.
