    Ryan O' Neal, Shelley Long, and a very young Drew Barrymore this is also the introduction of Sharon Stone onto the screen! if this premise sounds familiar it's because 10 years later Elijah Wood would do the same thing in the movie 'North' but here it's actually handled with more care balancing the comedy and the drama fresh after her stardom in 'E.T.' Drew Barrymore plays a 9 year-old girl who wishes to emancipate herself from both of her parents, yeah it sounds crazy as she gains media attention as well as taking her case to court the parents are flabbergasted yet as the case unfolds we go back to the beginning of how they all met and why the wedge between them increased the way it did Albert was an inspiring film student and Lucy was engaged to be married to another man; both of them met and fell in love on the road, married in a few days then had their daughter Casey both of them seemed like a pair made in heaven combining their love of film with a degree in writing but their work-obsessed life starts to take over making them not pay attention to Casey as well as resenting each other for not giving credit where credit is due Stone as an upcoming actress named Blake may also be the seed to her parents separating increasing the distance of their relationship film is the most emotional medium in the world according to Orson Wells so for Albert making a successful movie was his biggest goal to set them for life but Lucy may mean more to them than just their personal lives or achievements as she tries to open their eyes when you fall in love you have to be nice to them even when you don't love them anymore, when you have a kid you treat them like a human being not as a pet, parents have to recognize their child's rights as a human being and not treat them like cattle, we should know better when all grown up, have to know how to talk and how to act, at times we forget what we love that's in front of us when it's not there anymore Barrymore is the best actress in this thing truly opening up about the harsh reality of divorce it's very heartfelt yet very heavy all the same a film that talks about a very difficult subject matter but important for a lot of people whom have gone through the same ordeal

    Awful. Simply awful. The premise is corny. The acting is forced. And it's easy to see why most people haven't even heard of this movie.
