I remember this, had totally forgotten about it, then it resurfaced, oddly enough, and I thought, I remember this.
Basically it was to be an 'ideal' pairing of JoAnn Pflug (truth be told, she who has never been ideal for anything), Barbara Rhoades, Georgia Engel and Tina Louise.
For some reason, I recall this movie around the same time as Lauren Bacall and Ruth Gordon in another movie called Perfect Gentlemen (interesting for the robbery and the editing of a story read by the kids' father into a tape recorder).
Day Women Got Even clearly wanted to become a series of some sorts, with these clever, sleuthing ladies.
The main problem was the four women were not known for chemistry. Engels and Louise complimented others, but they never established a connection on their own.
Worth noting, Engels had just come from the failed sitcom Goodtime Girls, with Annie Potts and Lorna Patterson. Potts of course would go on into Designing Women, not the most diverse assortment of ladies there either.
But Rhoades, Louise, even Pflug, were all known for long legs, statuesque posturing. It was a virtual overkill.
The commercial breaks showed four necklace hearts, apparently the women each had one, that would all come together and link up.
The only scene I can clearly see was two of the women, I think Rhoades and Engel, dressed as nuns and clinging to the back of a garbage truck during the chase scene. Wow, wasn't that crazy and zany and almost Lucille Ball-esque? Want to watch a heavy, star-studded '80s flick, that you won't remember and just want to kill some time? check this one out.
