This is a made for TV gospel play complete with canned laughter, corny lines, and some questionable acting. Three women have opened a dessert catering store called "Sugar Mommas." The women are Shelia (Terri J. Vaughn), a 41 year old widow who wants to have a baby, but doesn't have a boyfriend. She wants to do this in vitro to the dismay of her sister/partner Lynn (Vanessa Williams). Lynn is 45 but doesn't look a day over 30. She is dating a 22 year old boy named Hank Young who sings for a band. She has talked him into leaving school to pursue his dream of being a singer. Tommi (Rachel True) is the third partner of the store. She is married to Derrek, a man who seriously needs acting lessons. When Jason (Lamman Rucker), a health food inspector shuts the store door, things become unglued as the health food inspector is also Hank's father who not only disapproves of the sugar momma relationship, but wants his son to attend college. Relationships become unusually strained. Derrek (VaShawn Mitchell) decides he can't handle his wife working at a bakery at night and wants a divorce as he behaves badly.He then goes into a gospel spiritual asking for divine guidance as if he is the victim. The humor is not very funny. When Jason asks, "How old is Lynn anyway?" Shelia's response is "On paper or in her head?" Cue laughter. The film has religious themes and mixes philosophy with religion. Fate is oversimplified as a "God Chart." Supposedly the Almighty keeps paper charts on everyone's life. Although the religious themes are kept light, it is clearly part of the background. There is only one musical number in this film. This is a series which appears on GMC on Saturdays at 7 and 9 according to the promo. Clips can be found on the web. Parental Guide: Family approved by the Dove Foundation for ages 12 and older. Vanessa William provides some legs/cleavage eye candy.
Sisters Sheila and Lynn have little in common except their love for sweets. In need of a change, they partner with their close friend Tommi to open a bakery.
