Quirky TV offering...
16 April 2007 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Bess Armstrong, then-star of the TV series "On Our Own", is very good as a perky newscaster who has her choice between two men for her future husband: a well-meaning dullard and an all-out romantic who will not let anyone stop him from winning Armstrong's heart. Richard Thomas is surprisingly well-cast as the guy with the incurable crush, even though by today's standards he may seem a little nutty (would bursting into a church on horseback constitute stalking?). Luckily, Bess kinda likes him after all, and this TV-film is memorably quirky and cute. Lots of guest-stars in support (Katherine Helmond, Van Johnson, Audra Lindley, Mark Harmon, Vic Tayback, Fabian, Richard Deacon) help make it a breezy, enjoyable affair.
