Unintentional Laughs
16 March 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Joan Collins, on a roll as Alexis Carrington on that 80's soap, "Dynasty," adapted Judith Gould's novel, "Sins," into a miniseries. Those who have read the book will be disappointed by what is translated on the screen. However, the miniseries will make for a good time. The plots and characters are laughable, especially Collins, who is supposed to play a much younger character. Some of the scenes will make you cringe (The dance scene at the beginning of the film with that god-awful music and even worse dancing!)and some of them would just make you shake your head in disbelief (What's up with Timothy Dalton's daughter's hair?). Steven Berkoff makes a pretty good villain, as well as Neil Dickson as Hubert, a guy that spends the whole film obsessing about Collns because she wouldn't sleep with him. Worth buying just for the fun and the feel of the 80's.
