Here's one of those insufferable modern-issue movies. When a woman (Melissa Gilbert-Brinkman) breaks up with her boyfriend (Tim Matheson), she suffers separation anxiety not from him but from his spunky 10-year-old son (Matthew Lawrence). The kid does a pretty fair acting job, but like this sentimental movie, he's a little too cute.
