another not so perfect affair
3 February 2003 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Dr Diana Dawson (Victoria Principal) is a California marine biologist who files a suit against GJS Constructions proposal to escavate the oceanline. The lawyer for GJS is Bob Gifford (Gill Gerrard), a reknowned womaniser, who wants to make Diana a conquest, but Diana is a vowed celibate. She dates him to learn his case strategy but soon both learn to change their behaviour. Will Bob withdraw from the defence citing a conflict of interest? Will Diana testify that she loves him?

Principal looks very beautiful, wearing her hair up for Diana's serious scenes, produces a witches cackle when drunk, and is funny when deflecting the insult of a female rival.

The teleplay by Philip Mishkin, Rick Podell and Michael Preminger make Diana bookish and clumsy, a woman who resents how attractive she is and how it works against her intentions, but also makes Bob aware of his own manipulative behaviour. The hero worship of Bob's friends is adolescent projection, and Diana is given a housemate Dee (Judy Strangis) who is promiscuous but unhappy to enforce the moral superiority of Diana's position, which is a reaction to a prevous betrayal.

Director Steve H Stern uses split screen at one point, but his treatment progressively winds down in energy, only redeemed by the sniping of Diana's soon-to-be divorced parents Wally and Martha (Robert Webber and Barbara Barrie). Stern also uses two songs on the soundtrack by Arthur B Rubinstein with vocals by Barbra Streisand's sister Roslyn Kind.
