Good cast in deadening, dewy-eyed exercise
27 April 2007 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

William Katt, hot off his star-jock role in "Carrie", failed to build upon his growing momentum with this extremely tepid affair, romancing an emotionally fragile college girl (Susan Dey) whose rocky childhood may keep her from trusting a man. Director Joan Darling, she riding high from the success of TV's "Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman", gives us two good-looking kids, a lot of frank sex talk, but not much else. The picture has a scrubbed-clean look--like a sappy weeper straight out of the 1950s--and a scenario undermined by simpering simplicity. Energetic cast (including Beverly D'Angelo, Robert Loggia and John Heard) can't keep it from lapsing into blandness. * from ****
