Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Ford commits, but this mawkish script would barely pass muster on Lifetime, taking the easy route any chance it gets, with an aggravating routine of rich white people feeling bad for rich white people."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"Perhaps Ford's best work, certainly his most challenging role."
‑ Steve Crum, Kansas City Kansan
"Strong Harrison Ford drama."
‑ Forrest Hartman, Reno Gazette-Journal
"an intriguing mess"
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"Soap opera, to be sure, but reasonably entertaining"
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"Depicts the spiritual transformation of an aggressive, successful, and amoral New York lawyer into a person who values love, play, intimacy, tenderness, and compassion."

‑ Emanuel Levy, Screendaily
"a conventional TV-movie-of-the-week"
‑ Doug Hennessy,
"Phoney sentimental rubbish"
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
