Difficult to watch without getting slightly melancholy.
1 March 2002 | by (Leeds, Yorkshire, UK) – See all my reviews

Regret can't really watch films about alcoholism, Angie Dickinson's presence notwithstanding. And poor David Janssen, long one of my favourite TV actors, looked old and tired by this time.
