Fantastic
7 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I truly Love this Movie , and would Love to see it on DVD. It provides an excellent view of A Single woman trying to provide for her family dealing with the discontent of her being A Woman going to work in an all male place in A rural Community ,where this is not suppose to happen.Where going against the establishment , Against these rural Ideas that have been around since the beginning of time is just not suppose to happen , and yet Cheryl Ladd plays an Excellent role of A person that does just that , and dealing with all of the prejudices in the situation overcomes everything to get the job done . Was an excellent role for Cheryl Ladd , to get away from the Charlies Angels role that had her stereotyped .
