From what I can remember of it, it's a good movie. Sad, but good.

Roberts and Sarandon make worthy adversaries, with the mom always tring to sway the kids' opinion, while the Stepmom just tries to learn how to be a parent, even though she never planned to be. Although I'm not usually big on family drama type …
