Great Movie
23 September 2000 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

This movie is wonderful. You can relax and enjoy a romantic film with one of the most handsome and sensuous leading men in Hollywood history - Fernando Lamas. And Lana Turner is beautiful. The movie allows you to forget about your worries and just enjoy a wonderful, romantic time.
