Gail O'Grady does a good job...
Okay, I will admit this is one of the movies you may watch while you are folding the laundry. Still and all, it's not a bad sequel to the first movie, where O'Grady has a fling with Grant Show, becomes pregnant, and has the child (Jake) without informing the sperm donor (words used in the script to refer to the father, not mine).
Chelsea Hobbs is O'Grady's teenage daughter, and also seems believable; meets a new older (i.e. non high-school) boyfriend, and gets stood up. Learns a few lessons.
Grant Show, the father of O'Grady's baby, pops on the scene, while she is engaged to a rather one-dimensional character, played by Rick Roberts. He is a trial lawyer at O'Grady's firm; O'Grady apparently advanced from paralegal to staff attorney in less than 3 years. She now has to pass the bar, so she can put the baby in daycare, send daughter to a good college, give the grandmother a break (grandma takes aerobics lessons), and she also needs to choose between Show and the attorney played by Roberts.
If you can suspend your disbelief for an hour or so, the scenes with O'Grady and the baby are quite nice; Grant Show attempts to reconcile, she initially says no. There is a surprise ending. Gail O'Grady keeps the audience interested in how this story will develop. 8/10.
