Apologies if the above summary doesn`t tie in with the rest of the review but the title reminded me of the Glenn Campbell song . Truth be told singalonga Glenn was th only pleasure I got while watching this dire TVM . A black woman called Jordan decides to open a care home in order to make some money . Not a very exciting plot but it`s difficult to explain how dire it all is because of many very slow scenes . Did I say it`s dire ? Good because I want to spell it out for you - This TVM is D-I-R-E . The first third of the story features some of the slowest scenes ever witnessed in a TVM . The worst thing is these scenes usually end up going absolutely nowhere anyway so why were they included ? Strangely for a TVM we`re treated to the "N" word , the "B" word and even the "O" word but this doesn`t make THE ROAD TO GALVESTON a more eventful journey . The only positive thing about this TVM is that it points out that it`s a very bad idea to let a drunk supervise senile old ladies but I guess everyone knew that same as everyone knows letting your kids spend the night at Neverland ranch can lead to dire consequences

Number of times the word " dire " appeared in the above review - 5
