21 April 2004 | by (kissimmee, fl) – See all my reviews

I like Elizabeth Montgomery, but she is miscast as a police detective who has an affair with her black partner O.J. Simpson. Her performance seemed detached and forced and the two stars have absolutely no onscreen charisma. In 1977 America, trying to make an edgy movie about biracial issues was not surprising but in order to make it work you must have characters who generate compassion and sympathy for their plight. Neither of these feelings came through for me. The writing was awful and Elizabeth could not pull off the "hip" language of the time. O.J. once again showed us why he never won any trophies for acting. Overall, an awful script and worse presentation but look for a cute , young Todd Bridges as O.J.'s son.
