Sam & Janet ★★ 2002 (PG-13)

Sam (Brown) goes through a messy divorce and is reluctant to hook up again, until he meets Janet (Ferguson). What follows is a long and tedious courtship in which Janet hides her past, which includes a nasty ex-husband who causes trouble. Most of the movie is devoted to the growing relationship, which is realistic but gets boring. It's basically like seeing your most boring friends' stories about how they met played out on your TV. Should garner a strong following among the Lifetime set. 90m/C VHS, DVD . Gary Busey, Ryan Brown, Jennifer Ferguson, Anna Beck, Blake Wolney, George Back; D: Rick Walker; W: Rick Walker; C: Byron Werner; M: David Percefull.
