Colleen Dewherst and Lee Remick RULE!
20 June 2000 | by (atlanta GA) – See all my reviews

I LOVE THIS MOVIE. I watch it every time I see that it's going to be on. I cannot fully explain it. Sure its a hackneyed plot done in that late 70's cheesy made-for-tv fashion but-dare I say it- that only adds to its allure for me. Something in its predictability and familiarity is reassuring. Go figure. I think that it all boils down to the fact that it is your basic LIFETIME KIND OF CHICK FLICK. Not to mention that Lee and Colleen are just fantastic.
