| Not bad
This is the usual made for TV staple about a mother who fears being left alone if her daughter leaves. She does everything in her power to scupper her daughters love life to stop this happening.

The plot is simple and as in most of these kind of movies you can guess what is going to happen. However that doesn't stop this being an enjoyable if undemanding film to watch. I thought all the actors did a good job even if the mother played by Gwynyth Walsh was a little bit too obviously insane. Nicholle Tom is charming and believable as the daughter.

Although predictable Maternal Obsession holds your attention and it made me want to find out how it would end. The ending is maybe a bit of a let down but for fans of TV movies this is worth watching, although if you expect too much you will be disappointed.
