Polly Draper plays an L.A. TV-news producer (although she seems to work about three hours a week). When she gets pregnant, her childhating ad-exec husband (Kevin Kilner) leaves her flat. At the height of her despair, along comes a soap opera producer (John Ritter) who is a veritable walking dairy when it comes to the milk of human kindness.

Though this sour-and-sweet romantic melodrama is a typically soggy piece of Hull horn Steel, it is well cast. No one is as suited to this type of schmaltz as Ritter.
