Nice and easy comedy drama!
22 September 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This is an interesting little TV Movie that makes pleasant and undemanding viewing. Anthony Geary stars as an Ex-Convict (Cade) who is a charming guy with a habit of fanciful lying. He is desperate to win back the love of his old girlfriend, who is a teacher, so he fakes his way into being the principal of the school - hence he is "The Impostor" of the film's title. Geary impressed in this role and shows that he is quite a versatile actor, it is a shame i have mostly see him play bad guys in B-Movies. Billy Dee Williams also stands out in this film as an old jail buddy who is willing to pose as a teacher in order to help rid the school of its drug problem. A little romance, action, comedy and drama actually blend well in this film and the result is simply a good story.
