Too much of "Any Day Now" founders in cliche and predictable table-turning and point-scoring instead of building a set of complicated characters at odds with a biased system.

A warmly captured, nicely acted period piece social-issue drama that cycles through familiar territory but also deftly sidesteps conventional wisdom about where it may end up.

The growing community of gay parents deserves a better reflection of their struggles than a kitschy "Kramer vs. Kramer."

Switches between a few primary modes -- agenda-mentary, romance, courtroom drama, tearjerker -- without engaging very convincingly in any of them.

A Very Special Movie approach for material that deserves nuance and patience, relying on shameless manipulation to communicate simple ideas on prejudice and parenting.

This poignant if overly sentimental twist on the child-custody drama transcends some of its melodramatic trappings.

This gay custody-battle drama beautifully delivers on every level, especially emotionally.

Though set in 1979 West Hollywood, its themes echo loudly in today's courtrooms as well through compelling characters and an unrelenting narrative.
