WOW, for a Canadian TV production, this was excellent and factual!

After seeing this film, I came on IMDb to leave a review and noticed this is a Canadian production... BRAVO!

It was very well acted, great directing, and decent writing (some cheesy parts I could've done without). What I really liked was the facts on how insurance companies work, and look only to impress and wealthen their shareholders. My cousin is an Actuary (Google it if you don't know what it is) from Canada and a *top* US insurance company hired and moved him and his family to the states - paid all moving expenses AND his salary is almost 1,000,000 USD, and all he does is compute the best statistics to benefit the insurance companies' bottom line. So I can see how something like what happened in this film would frustrate someone to go to this level, and I'm sure it has in real life.

Excellent story and production! A well deserved 9/10 from me.

A story about life: people living--making their way on their own paths, as they relate to, and interact with, others.

Regarding this remarkable film, the details (marriage, divorce, school, and work) are peripheral. The compelling unfolding of this story lies in it's exceptional dramatic presentation of essentials. It addresses choices, motivations, and actions in a thoroughly entertaining, yet challenging, manner.

First rate work by all--cast, crew, and everyone involved in this project. I'm thankful that I had the opportunity to experience I HAVE YOUR CHILDREN.

Great writing, great acting, great technical expertise, and tremendous wisdom and generosity from executive producers.

Thank you, I HAVE YOUR CHILDREN team, for a great film.

Much love.

Great acting from Alaina Huffman

Quite a good story well executed, maybe some minor plot holes, but the reason I am bothering to comment is because of the outstanding, believable acting from Alaina Huffman. I loved the way the film started and gave you immediate sympathy for and empathy with the characters. Worth watching just for that.

It was no doubt the best film i've ever seen.It had all the spectors tuhat good movie needs, it was emotional, a lot of questions with very good answers, instructive, intense, characters was written very well. The film gave viewers the opportunity to decide what is or who ise good or bad. This film creates different, but definitely very strong feelings for people with different worldviews. I love it.

This is such a load of rubbish I don't know where to start.

No hostage situation has a free for all operational policy as this film portrays.

The female cop proving divorced females are as good as men. The SWAT team working independently, individual civilians doing whatever they choose.

This film reminded me of the old Batman series years ago when Batman telegraphed what was going to happen in his script.

It has some entertainment value but this went when the Peanut allergy became the topic of concern.
