Just imagine: Here, Mom, I bought you this movie about an unmarried, middle-aged woman who gets herself knocked up. Hope it inspires you! Love ya!
Gail OGrady of NYPD Blue is the paralegal who allows herself to be seduced by an expert witness in one of the cases shes working on. Hes a heart surgeon that looks like Grant Show of Melrose Place and is so I assume that makes it OK? (Not being female, Im simply going with my gut here.) Well, despite having earlier getting fitted for a new diaphragm, she finds herself with child. Doh!
Making matters worse, shes been preaching abstinence to her virgin daughter (Danielle Panabaker, The Crazies), whos about the horniest teen girl youll find on basic cable: Everybody was making out except me! she complains/cries to Mom after a totally lame party. Nobody even asked me!
I havent seen many Lifetime movies (you read the not being female line from two paragraphs earlier, no?) in my, er, Lifetime, but none of the four or five I have were any good, because theyre way too cornball and self-righteous. Sex and the Single Mom joins that elite group, although OGrady is so ophotogenic that she kept my attention. Hey, at least Im honest. Rod Lott
