This movie certainly "seduced" me!
Wow, that Laura Ingalls sure has grown up. She's left her little house on the prairie for a slightly bigger house on a prairie. This time she's a loving wife and loving mother to two wonderful kids. It seems she's got it all, until a drifter (the amazing Joely Fisher) rolls into town.
How do we know Joely Fisher is a no-good drifter? Why, she's smoking, of course. All drifters smoke.
Anyway, the drifter has her eye on Laura Ingalls' perfect life. She wants her husband, she wants their house, she wants their money. But hubby's got a thing for Miss Ingalls. He ain't going to stray. Piece of advice? Don't rebuff the advances of a drifter.
Joely gets upset, starts talking smack about Laura Ingalls and her husband. Says she's heard they've been smacking around their kids. Next thing you know, the Child Welfare people are knocking on the door and taking those kids away.
What follows next is about an hour of "Don't take away my babies!" screeching from Laura Ingalls. Does she get her kids back? Do you really care?
Stick around for the surreal ending, though.
