Also on Saturday: Mental Health Movie, Big Time Tribute

Kristin Davis stars and executive produces the cable movie “Of Two Minds” (Lifetime, 8 and 10 p.m.), about a woman who suddenly has to care for her schizophrenic sister after their mother dies.

Tammy Blanchard of “Moneyball” chews up some scenery as the afflicted sister, and the movie tends to run from mad scene to calm down to mad scene. It all depends on the meds.

It’s not often that mental health is dealt with seriously or at all in film, and we are reminded of one of the other times as Louise Fletcher, who won an Oscar in “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” appears as well.

A new generation’s Fab Four tries to salute a previous one’s in “BIg Time Rush: Big Time Movie” (Nickelodeon, 8 p.m.) in which the made four TV music group goes on a spy caper and covers Beatles songs from “Help!” to “We Can Work It Out” with the kind of detail that will fly right over the head of Big Time Rush fans and do little but further annoy their parents.
