"I have a splinter in my butt."
I just finished watching this painful Sunday film. My son was married on Saturday, and I was too tired to leave the couch and to click the remote. What a simple, predictable story. I never liked Sela Ward, who is one of the worst actors ever. Even a ton of red lipstick does not help. Anyone who knows mill workers, especially steel workers, sees the flaws in this. First of all, a steel town is not a charming, storybook place to live. Bowling, community theatre, a cozy dinner place at film's end were silly. In this economy Hollywood money would not save a dying industry! And the workers in line for splinter-in-the-butt removal and other such ailments -- dumb, dumb, dumb! Hiring her as a nurse in a steel mill where serious accidents DO happen was unreal and dangerous. And that white-haired, panty-waist Ben -- was that his name? What a crummy job acting! His supposed-to-be dynamic speeches and serious looks were hilarious, and Ward's portions were miserable. Near the end when the assortment of characters was-were speaking - ugh! How bad was that? And Fran -- horrible acting. What a way to end a perfect weekend. This destined for a tour of Lifetime film is awful so do not waste your time. It was not even sleep-inducing -- way more painful than "a splinter in the butt"! I cannot believe I actually wrote that stoopid word I never say. See what this did to me. Avoid this garbage.
