Horrible accent and no chemistry

""Half-Pint" from "Little House on the Prairie" dons a cheesy and uneven French accent while mourning the death of her much older husband and son, as she neglects her surviving child. When her daughter befriends a divorced artist, they form an unlikely friendship which turns to romance.
I had a difficult time refraining from wincing from Glbert's atrocious accent, which brings the film down a notch or two. The performances overall are okay, but the story is entirely too predictable. There was more chemistry between the daughter and the love interest - I just didn't get the feel that these two suddenly became soul mates. Gilbert's accent was just so distracting and annoying; the only actress to pull off a worse accent is perhaps Jennifer Love Hewitt in "The Truth About Love" which is another must miss."
Lose the accent!

"This movie would have been alot better if Melissa Gilbert didn't use that phoney accent and all that lipstick. She looked old beyond her years. She looked the best in the one scene with no lipstick. The movie would have carried on fine if she were just an american. And I even thought "Matt" felt uncomfortable pronouncing her "French" name. Other than that it was an ok movie."
We waited since the 90's for this?

"Remember in the 90's when a whole bunch of T.V. movie versions of Danielle Steel's books hit the airwaves? How great most of them were, filled with passion, suspense, drama and glitz? Well, after watching this first adaption in ten years, I sure felt nostalgic for THOSE days! Melissa Gilbert, looking like she has had way too much plastic surgery, tries to act and sound (not even close) like a Frenchwoman mourning the loss of her husband and son. All she has left is an annoying daughter named "Pip" (no comment) and a dog called Mousse (double no comment). Well, she ends up meeting a bland guy (Brad Johnson) and they fall in love, against all odds. End of story. Really, because the acting, good pacing, spark and emotion are all non-existent. Plot devices thrown in for no good reason. Zero chemistry between any of the actors. And the intro by Danielle Steel was really odd. A huge disappointment, obviously slapped together in about 5 minutes. BRING BACK THE 90's!"
