Movie Reviews

Better on VHS!!!
Fernando Grillo Abdelnour | San Josť, Costa Rica | 01/14/2004
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This is the WORST transfer to DVD I've ever seen!!! I think the VHS copy looks and sounds better, do NOT waste your money!!!"
Runs too Long, but acting is good...
Heather Cuoio | IdahoUSA | 03/23/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I just finished watching Callie and Son. I got my copy from the Dollar Store and it has another movie (Power Passion and Murder) with Michelle Pfeiffer in it as well... It really wasn't that bad, considering the price I paid. Lindsay Wagner is actually the main character and I think she did a great job, as did most of the actors in this film. The only trouble is the movie lasted about a hour longer than it needed to. With a bit of editing and a bit better script, it would have been a great movie! The end was somewhat unexpected and horrifying... I'd recommend it for someone to watch once, but I wouldn't pay more than I did for it. The DVD quality is really poor, the sound fades in and out, but for what it was, a bargain bin cheapy, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it."
Strong Performance By Lindsey Wagner, Early Michelle Pfeifer
C. Rocklein | 04/04/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"It's the story of a woman's life, from obsure and humble beginnings to her rise to power as the wife of a newspaper mogul, who dies leaving her and the son she thought she'd lost in a position of considerable power. Better than average performances by Lindsey Wagner as the obsessive mother and Michelle Pfeifer as the son's wife, though it could have been, and probably was, a tv drama. Video quality was average to acceptable in widescreen format, but not great. The story itself gets interesting a good 40 minutes into it and carries you through the 140 minutes. Set mostly in Texas, it starts in the early 50s with the Korean War as backdrop, chronicles the Kennedy assassinations through to civil rights, Viet Nam and the 70s. The actors work best when the storyline reaches the 70s. It won't be the best thing you've ever seen, though you could do worse. Pfeifer is practically a teenager, and Wagner is still more or less in her prime. I'll turn off a movie if it doesn't capture my interest somewhat. This one fairly did. I'd give it a strong 3.5 stars. Possibly 4 depending on your criteria."
