Our Sons

EW's GRADE
B

Details Genres: Drama, TV Movie; With: Julie Andrews and Ann-Margret

Audrey (Julie Andrews) is a high-powered career woman. Luanne (Ann-Margret) is an ignorant waitress. Yet they overcome their differences, of course, to bond over their common concern: their gay sons, James (Hugh Grant) and AIDS-stricken Donald (Zeljko Ivanek). In the ABC drama Our Sons, nothing is surprising except how painlessly it fulfills its educational mission. The dialogue is relentlessly expository, but Grant and Ivanek are nicely matter-of-fact, and Andrews and Ann-Margret execute their roles with great professionalism. B
