Enjoyable rubbish. Among the implausibilities we are expected to swallow are the following: that British Social Security officers would dump an orphan baby on an unknown American, that a tough businesswoman like Ms Keaton would buy 60 acres and a derelict house sight unseen from a newspaper ad, and that a million-dollar baby food industry can be built up from nothing in the space of a month. Apart from that - completely credible.
