You see Neely's has a very special young talent, it needs a place to grow, to become more confident, now I can give her that and we can all share in those results, but it's that talent that's so valuable it's precious, it needs firm professional guidance and if you're going to continue to handle you better learn your business young man, the amateurs have a tendency to bring everyone down to their level, and in this case, that's intolerable.

The complexity of Jacqueline Susann's characters and subtlety of their relationships are completely lost in this syrupy TV movie, which also suffers from too many miscast parts--from a very average-looking Ann to a flat-chested Jennifer and an overly cheery Nelly.
The reasons for putting together such a project are rather mysterious, and to say it didn't age well would be finding excuses for this universally shabby and lazy movie, which can't be saved by several fine performances.
All we're left with is a cheap mini-soap brightened by a couple of good songs by lovely Lisa Hartman. Good enough if you can't fall asleep at 3 in the morning--this should do the trick. Otherwise, do yourself a favor and buy the book!
