Enjoyable TV Movie
2 June 2001 | by (Bronxville, NY) – See all my reviews

Robyn Douglas is very good as a woman who wants to be judged on the merits of her work. The movie is a lot of fun except for Robert Culp who insists on being so unrealistic in one of his worst portrayals. Other than that, the movie is a lot of fun, and generally moves pretty quickly.
