Did You Know?

Based on the real-life romance and marriage of Playboy's Miss April 1982, Linda Rhys Vaughn. The scenes of Debra's video profile on the "Centerfold Channel" are remarkably like Linda's Playmate Video Profile without the nudity.See more »

Nice film that falls apart at the end., 9 March 2004
Author: Tom DeFelice from Leominster Mass USA

This film is a made for TV movie with just enough jiggle to promise an audience to tune in. As a romance it holds up fairly well for the first eighty minutes. It is only at the end when the "centerfold stands against the face of adversity to sing her song" that the film falls apart. The resulting "courageous" finale is so lubricious, it is an embarrassment.

Both Teri Copley and Tim Daly give amiable performance. Diane Ladd and Bert Remsen in much smaller roles take over whenever they appear on screen. Todd Susman and Anson Mount, TV actors of the time, do yeoman work. And for good measure, a pair of 1980's Playboy Playmates are given cameo parts.

By and large, it is a rather sweet romantic film as long as you leave before they put on the "big show". As to the finale, don't worry. It ends happily. After all, it is called "I Married A Centerfold".
