Glossy H-wood garbage...a gossip-column turned teleplay!
23 February 2001 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Jaclyn Smith is a decent actress; with no real acting experience at the time Aaron Spelling put her in "Charlie's Angels", she never embarrassed herself on that show (especially the early episodes where she actually showed some spunk). Unfortunately, no one has been able to tap that sassy side of her since. She has played all different types of characters, but the only TV-movie she's made that left an indelible impression on me was "Rage Of Angels", a decent potboiler with Smith doing B+ work. "The Users" presents her as a muse to a faded Hollywood hack, climbing the ladder of celebrity herself only to find Lotus Land full of backbiters. Is any of this new? No. It is enjoyable anyway? Occasionally, yes. It's a melodramatic soap opera with tatty, now-dated trappings. I didn't much mind the television budget or the sudsy dialogue. I did, however, want to see Jaclyn Smith give a stronger performance. When will Aaron Spelling work his magic on her again?
