never mind the plots, this is how tv should be
22 August 2002 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I dont think i have seen Tony Curtis so happy as he appears to be in this role. Whether its 'acting' happy or not, his and Moore's relationship lights up the screen, bringing cheerful escapist television into any living room.
