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.

Frank Ochieng
Movie Eye

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

De-press-ing drama of Kathy Bates and her starving family trying to survive.

Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat
Spirituality and Practice

Offers a flinty portrait of a single mother of six, who is one-of-a-kind.
