Raquel Makes It Fun, 18 April 1999
Author: Eric-62 from Athens, OH

Raquel Welch in her sex symbol prime makes this picture worth seeing. I kind of wish the script had made her character a little more intelligent, but the film is an entertaining, breezy diversion. Clive Revill also delivers a very funny performance.
