Kathleen Quinlan steals this TV Movie from Linda Purl
24 March 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Another great TV movie of the week. The acting is quite good by everyone involved. Carolyn Jones plays quite an unsympathetic role here. She's jealous of the attention her husband Paul Burke gives their daughter (Purl) so she treats her like crap. Linda Purl feels the need to run away and ends up on Hollywood Blvd. Once there she falls victim to pimp Clifton Davis and his cadre of hookers led by Lana Wood. One scene shows Lana doling out what she considers "sisterly love" by beating the crap out of Purl. The one that really needs beating in this movie is Carolyn Jones. As a viewer, you want to slap her back into the "Addams Family" for being such a whiny bitch. The one person in this movie who really shines is Kathleen Quinlan playing a 15 year old hooker. Her acting is top notch and she really comes across as a hardened prostitute. The only way to tell that this is not "Starsky and Hutch" is David Soul permed his hair for this flick. Overall, a good slice of life for teenage runaways, kind of gritty and not too glamorized like "Pretty Woman" was years later. Worth watching!
