Appalled after seeing film of endangered seals in Newfoundland being clubbed to death, pot-smoking, post-hippie college professor Donald Sutherland hires lady lawyer Suzanne Somers to bring cease-and-desist action against the heartless conglomeration responsible. Mixture of good deed-doing, romantic comedy, and wacky car chases fails to add up. Somers, who at this point was still riding a high from TV's "Three's Company", tries out different bits of character business before predictably falling back on her trademark silly faces and girlish squeals. This was a poor choice to jump-start Suzanne's movie career, co-executive produced by her agent and her husband! Still, Somers is far more watchable than Sutherland, whose slightly sinister, over-enunciated line readings are the polar opposite of romance and slapstick. The biggest mistake here was to feature apparently real footage of actual seals being killed--certainly not the way to begin a comedy! Filmed in Toronto, which explains the presence of Canadian cast members Joe Flaherty, Eugene Levy, drag performer Craig Russell, David Steinberg, and Catherine O'Hara. * from ****
