A charming little film.
20 December 1999 | by (Houston) – See all my reviews

A charming little film. Margot Kidder turns in good piece of work as the stripper searching for her dream, and thinking of her G-string as a sort of psychological protection from the sleaziness of her world. I've never much cared for Ted Danson, but he is pretty good here as the semi-no-account drifter who falls for Margo. The pace is a bit slow here, but the film gets better as it goes along.
