great movie
23 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing this movie over 20 years ago and found it to be very well made. Both Forrest and Daly made fine performances and I was surprised to find out now that it was actually a made for television movie and am quite puzzled why it hasn't made it out to VHS or DVD as of yet? I know it being a television movie it might not get the backing to release it onto a format such as VHS or DVD but having a decent cast would have prompted distributors or producers to release it onto tape years ago. In scouring Ebay and Amazon and Barnes & Noble, I come up with nothing! Does anyone know of an outlet that sells it or does anyone have an old copy that I could trade for or buy?
