from Hallmark-

When three friends single-handedly take on the rebuilding of a run down house, they soon dscover that their own lives require an equal amount of renovation.

With their church in dire need of funds in order to maintain its daycare center, the local pastor turns to three parishners for help: Rose (Florence Henderson), whose beloved husband, Frank (Lance Henriksen) is hiding a serious medical condition; well-to-do Elizabeth (Donna Mills), the haughty wife of a an inattentive plastic surgeon, (Gordon Thomson); and Birdie (Pam Grier), who is trying to adjust to life now that her husband, Stan (Richard Roundtree), a new retiree, is using his free time to be a general nuisance around the house.

The pastor's solution is to have the ladies oversee renovations of a run-down house that was donated to the church, but with no funds for a proper crew, the women reluctantly agree to take on the heavy lifting themselves, form pipes to paint. As the little house's upgrades continue, its slow progress mirrors deep personal changes in the lives of three women, who are forced to make difficult decisions regarding their lives, their past decisions and the future.

Movie Review:

This is a definite Chic-Flick.... there are some adult issues dealt with- love, marriage, sickness, adultery, and death. In spite of all of those issues.... there are a lot of light-hearted fun moments in between, as well... as we watch these unique women build this house and rebuild their lives.

It's an interesting journey to watch these women. Not a movie I think children would enjoy - so watch this one with your girlfriends, sisters, or mother.

(SPOILER) Note: there are some sad moments in this movie, as Rose's husband gets very sick and passes away. Birdie rebuilds her relationship with her husband and Elizabeth decides to end her marriage, as she is tired of her husband cheating on her.

There is a lot of emotion here, and maybe you will see yourself in one of these characters, and discover there is strength in love and friendship.

See, with your Girlfriends....
