MRS WIN­TER­BOURNE (1996) 7TWO, 2PM, PG, COM­EDY

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

In a case of mis­taken iden­tity, preg­nant 18-year-old Con­nie (Ricki Lake) is as­sumed to be the widow of the wealthy young Hugh (Bren­dan Fraser) whose mother (Shirley MacLaine) wel­comes her and her baby into their pala­tial home. Af­ter ini­tial trep­i­da­tion, twin brother Bill (also played by Fraser) be­gins to fall for Con­nie and the tea leaves be­gin to spell out “happily ever af­ter”. Re­cy­cling clichés faster than you can spot them, it’s a nip-and-tuck ver­sion of San­dra Bul­lock’s While You Were Sleep­ing (1995) given a res­o­lutely old-fash­ioned comic treat­ment. ★★
