Gives star vehicles, women's pictures and cable-movies a bad name
29 June 2001 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Carol Burnett makes a far less convincing dramatic actress than, say, Mary Tyler Moore. Her rubbery face and jaunting jaw are tailor-made for comedy, but those slightly googly features freeze up when she attempts drama. She becomes prim and pinched, and a Carol Burnett without color and comic pizazz is slightly disconcerting. Playing a somewhat loose woman who becomes unlikely friends with an ex-society broad (Elizabeth Taylor), Burnett attempts to mine dramatic territory while keeping her comedic instincts in check, yet it's a gamble that doesn't pay off. Taylor and Burnett are an odd pairing--their acting styles are dissimilar, to say the least--but Liz comes off better, using her braying brand of humor to an amusing effect. The film is cable-TV sludge that has been justly forgotten, but the memory of it sticks with me whenever I see a comic actor or actress attempting to be Olivier, for no other purpose on Earth except to show us their dreaded "range".
