TV movie is worth watching Sonny Bono's fame...
3 April 1999 | by (Suffolk, Virginia) – See all my reviews

...but don't forget the real country music stars, too. Starting off as a cheesy B-grade actioner, it becomes a showcase of Sonny Bono's 45 minutes of fame. His acting lines are actually dead hilarious, outweighing the mystery and suspense that was supposed to be present. Above everything else, as with the TV movies of the past 20 years, it's very tame with a cast that would be strictly appealing to smart adults. Here's a movie where Claude "Double-A Emcee-O" Akins can actually sing while being teary-eyed at the same time. Of interest: the character names are made from the first and last names of the head cast; "Sonny Hunt" is Sonny Bono, "Dana Morgan" is Morgan Fairchild. And gosh, if only Cher replaced Lee Purcell, we would have had the ultimate "Sonny & Cher" reunion set in Music City!
