It's too bad Nick at Nite doesn't come up with a cable-channel for TV movies like this
28 May 2001 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Young people just discovering "Three's Company" from Nickelodeon would probably love to see the TV-movies the cast made during their summer hiatus (Suzanne Somers played a nightclub singer in "Happily Ever After", Joyce DeWitt played a prospective bride in "With This Ring" and John Ritter takes a dramatic leap here as a paraplegic). Casting Ritter as a wheelchair-bound horse-lover who finds love post-accident with none other than Carrie Fisher was a wild idea (even in 1977), but it pays off. It's a very sincere, heartfelt drama that surprises us not with its message but with the frank dialogue and nice chemistry. It would be very nice to see this one again...maybe Carrie Fisher has a copy?
