What some people think about this movie...

Valerie Bertinelli plays the mother of the son in question. It is definitely a made for TV movie. I taped it on a lark with the pre-conceived notion that it would be laughably bad. It wasn't. It did bring the frustration & devastation of such closed-minded prejudices to life. Valerie Bertinelli enjoying a passionate kiss with another woman in the rain was quite enjoyable for an old "One Day At A Time" fan like myself. The ending was overly symbolic & cheesy but got the point across, nonetheless.
