Hey,Give it a chance!
13 April 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I recently acquired a copy of this movie on VHS & thought it was absolutely fantastic-better than all that drivel that Hollywood dishes out today,that's for sure!.The movie takes a while to get to the point,but hey,nothing's perfect.There's even a slight hint of comedy in some parts.All in All,I found it an entertaining who-done-it that is typical of 1970's TV movies.The mild-mannered housewife role played by Farrah Fawcett-Majors (as she was then known) is a complete departure from her earlier work on 'Charlie's Angels'.She wears very little make-up or hair dye.This movie is not everyone's cup of tea,but it's good enough for a rainy Sunday afternoon or a night in with family or friends.
