Another Excellent TV Movie starring Liz!
26 August 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yes, it is hard for me to be objective about anything with Elizabeth Montgomery in it as I am a huge fan. This movie is quite good. Dorothy McGuire does a great job as her mom, funny considering Liz slaps her around the next year in "Amos", another good TV movie. Here she plays a woman who wakes up after falling into a coma after 20 years. She was only 17 when she collapsed at school. Now, she finds out her younger sister is married to her old boyfriend! Of all the indignity! She has quite a hard time adjusting to harshness of the 80's and wonders where all the innocence went, no more malt shops, just loud video arcades full of bratty teenagers. One cute scene is where she walks back to her old high school and goes straight to her old locker forgetting where she has been for the past 20 years. Karen Grassle is quite good as her younger sister who we find out was extremely jealous of her back in the day. I mean she married her old boyfriend. Not the best movie Liz has done, the script is kind of predictable and it has the typical Hollywood ending but good performances, very dated 80's wardrobe and ambience but still enjoyable.
