Carol Burnett in another good drama performance
19 November 2000 | by (Parkersburg, West Virginia) – See all my reviews

After seeing Miss Burnett's variety series, it is nice to see that she can also do drama. This and "Friendly Fire" are amongst the best acting of her career and although at times this film seems a bit white-washed, it is still a very good film. Ably supported by great actors like Lloyd Bridges and Conchata Farrell, this movie is at times touching and a few times, humorous!! Very good all around film.
