For this sort of role, [Rob Lowe] leaves The West Wing?
Rob Lowe is an overworked attorney in need of some Christmas spirit. Meanwhile, a young boy must come to terms with his terminally ill mother's condition. It's a highly manipulative piece of filmmaking. There's plenty of sad, crying speeches. It sucks out most of the emotion when it's trying so hard to upset it's audience. Luckily, their performances and Christmas cheer are enough to keep this film afloat.
I thought everyone gave good performances, but Rob Lowe didn't really dazzle me. He was just kind of there... You can definately tell this is a made for TV movie, and even if it is a little cheesy, it will make you cry (or at least make your throat tight while you try to pretend you're not crying!)
What a tear jerker movie - and a Christmas movie to boot. It is OK I guess.
