Lot of suspense
9 March 2000 | by (Ann Arbor) – See all my reviews

You won't be bored for a minute with this one, it's very well-written and it's got some really neat plot twists. It's an interesting role for Mike Farrell who is very believable as the suspect and Margo Kidder ones again shows us what a fine actress she is. Elliott Gould, as the police inspector, is fantastic and Fred Gwynne, good old Fred, is swell as the clergyman. A great cast, a great plot, great direction, next time they run it, be sure to record and save it for a rainy afternoon with the family.
