Two Friends, Drama-Qn Fun, Heartfelt, Great Pairing of Two "Accomplished" Actresses!!
21 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Excellent Movie! grows on you>>>>>>>>>>>> characters are believable and Very Funny!

Wonderful acting on both parts!!

Have not seen this movie for years! believe it was on HBO? ( T.V.)

Looking to add it to my collection!" ANYONE KNOW HOW I CAN OBTAIN A COPY" ???? Very Interested!!!

I am an "Elizabeth Taylor Fan", this is one that has escaped. It amazed me "Carol Burnett" funny - but she played more of a dramatic role, and still was very humorous, Great Job!

Elizabeth Taylor, well you know she is the original "Drama Queen"! ha ha, I found her to play yet another serious role, found her to be the comedic-one, the girl can act! ( or is it?) no disrespect. Great pairing-Loved it!>>>>>>>>

You will enjoy the sensitivity, the humor, just again Great Acting on both parts!

Great casting also... Fun Movie>>>>>>>>>>>>> ; )

I have wanted to see this again, I probably saw it 10 times when it played on TV (HBO?) for that month's feature!

Back in the day 1983? I guess ha ha.....
