Critically clobbered in its theatrical release, The Next Best Thing, the tale of a yoga teacher and her gay best friend who decide to raise a child together, fits better on the small screen. Though it suffers from a muddled agenda (screwball comedy? courtroom drama?), the film does have its moments of wry-gay-guy/ straight-gal humor. C+
