Rather tepid romance that promises little and delivers less.
2 March 2001 | by (Berkeley, California) – See all my reviews

Jack Woodford was a prolific and highly talented writer. He was regarded as somewhat scandalous -- if not an outright pornographer -- in his day, but by contemporary standards his books were really rather sweet little romances, with just a dash of sex suggested, never described in salacious detail.

"City Limits" was one of his early novels, and Woodford fans would be eager to see it, if it were released on tape or DVD. However, they would be disappointed. There is very little resemblance between the film and Woodford's novel of the same name.
