Not So Bad...
5 October 2004 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

On a recent Biography Channel profile of Cheryl Ladd, this TV-Movie was featured prominently, including interviews with Director Hunt, partly because it instilled Ms. Ladd with a life-long crusade to prevent child abuse. I remember watching this movie when it first aired, as it starred my favorite "Angel", along with my TV Hero forever: Robert Urich. The two give great performances, however I thought the 'graphic' scenes of Ladd abusing her daughter were tame, at least from what might actually be going on behind closed doors every day in homes across America. Most of the action is verbal, with one physical incident that sends her child to hospital. Equally important are the actions and re-actions of Urich, in a performance to identify with. If you are a fan of either or both actors, this is well worth seeing.
