Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Though Kathy Bates and Furlong's acting is decent, there is no reason to see this inspirational saga on the big screen; in scope and goal, it's a suitable TV Movie of the Week."
‑ Emanuel Levy, Variety
"Needlessly corny...a manipulative melodrama that wastes the presence of a fine actress such as Bates...Furlong's brooding becomes rather tedious in Bill's drowsy dud"
‑ Frank Ochieng, Movie Eye
"De-press-ing drama of Kathy Bates and her starving family trying to survive."
‑ Steve Crum, Video-Reviewmaster.com
"Offers a flinty portrait of a single mother of six, who is one-of-a-kind."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
