"Breed" isn't the word
27 November 2003 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Poorly acted drama about Robert Young -- doing a badly acted William Powell impression -- coming between Janis Carter, doing a bad Lucille Ball imitation and Reed Hadley doing a surprisingly awful Charlton Heston imitation. Beautiful location shots don't do anything towards rescuing this picture. Not even awful enough to be interesting.
