User Reviews

The script is pretty good but the director and the cast aren't really up to it.
26 March 2000 | by See all my reviews

Dull, early anti-Vietnam War drama set mostly on an air force base in Florida, where various women are waiting for their husbands to return from the horror. We're waiting too, but director, Robson (of "Von Ryan's Express" fame), is more at home with action than the interesting demands of Joan Micklin Silver's and James Bridges' script.
