Home on a Saturday with nothing to do but laundry, I tuned into the Black Starz network to see a movie that I would only watch while bored. The premise features two, agency-owned models who moonlight with a detective agency. The music (sound-track), characters and acting were too reminiscent of Charlies Angels making one wonder, "why bother? This has already been done". In fact, Charlies Angels had (has, if you catch them in syndication) more to offer in that you get your set-up for the story right away, head straight for the action and within the hour, your done. Their acting is fairly decent and the characters are believable.
This made-for-TV movie drags the so-so plot entirely too long and the acting feels stilted, as if you're being read to; however, if you're a fan of Jayne Kennedy, she looks phenomenal in this movie as does her counterpart, Cornelia Sharpe. Due to the fact that they are models, there's lots of posing and cheesing for the camera. And for added bonus, you can see the future James 'Sonny' Crockett get his disco-grove on as the undercover agent (clearly one of Don Johnson's first films).
Overall, if you're a nostalgia 70's addict, then definitely add this to your collection. If you want a taste of what television movies were like before the 80's, based-on-a-true-story, and the 90's, based on-the-popular-novel genres took over? Then, check this one out.
