This achingly earnest TV movie about three yuppie friends is like an issue of Parenting magazine come to life. Dinah (Empty Nest) Manoff and her hubbie, Adam Arkin, are jumping through hoops trying to conceive. Pregnant Marcy (Santa Barbara) Walker needs in utero surgery to deal with a kidney disorder in her unborn child, and unmarried Lindsay Wagner is considering becoming a single parent. Even so capable a cast can't make this boggy melodrama get up and boogie.
