A Must-See for Any Carrie Fisher Fan
5 April 2002 | by See all my reviews

This television film, which I first saw way back in 1978, was what really hooked me as a Carrie Fisher fan. It was also the first film of hers I had seen after "Star Wars" and it was a pleasant change of pace from that film. The chemistry between Carrie Fisher and John Ritter, best known for his comedic role on "Three's Company," elevate this film beyond the standard "movie of the week." There's humor in the film, as well as romance, and it offers viewers a chance to see both leads in roles they weren't famous for.
