An oldie but a goo-die
6 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I recently caught this film on Showtime, after looking for it for well over twenty years. I had first seen it as a young girl, but it is just as fresh, sweet and endearing as it was back then. If you get a chance to check it out, please do. Margot Kidder is hilarious as Rita, and Annie Potts is good too. The ilm is essentially about a young woman who is really just learning about the world, and she is lucky enough to connect with an older, more experienced woman who is good hearted and kind. They run into many adventures along the way, and of course become friends. This must have been a sleeper back then, but it is still a gem. They don't make too many sensitive films that are funny anymore.
