Grandma has the adorable subtype of senile dementia, and is a bit of a handful with her crusty zingers and oblique pearls of wisdom. But she’s not so far gone as to monopolize all of Carter’s sensitivity, and he considerately makes the surplus available to the sensitivity-starved females of the neighboring Hardwicke family, all three of whom fall in love with him.
First to succumb is housewife Sarah (Ryan), who confides to the
empathetic man-child about her breast lump and failing marriage. Next
is teenage daughter Lucy (Stewart), who opens up to him about boy
troubles and conflicts with her parents. Finally there’s preteen Paige
(Vega), whose attraction to Carter is that of one pure and innocent
heart to another.
