A father-to-be is struck by the news that he is
suffering from terminal cancer and decides to document his final days on videotape as a diary for his unborn son.
This sentimental drama certainly has it's heart in the
right place and evokes some good performances from it's cast, but it seems content to take the path of least resistance to evoke some easy tears, especially with the overplaying of John
Barry's saccharine music score.
