I really enjoyed watching this film; a made for TV movie filmed in the late 1980s. Some of the reviewers have expressed disappointment with this film; expecting some serious Audrey Hepburn classic I guess. Hey guys, that is not what this movie is about! Audrey and Robert Wagner were already proven stars when this movie was made. It was not the vehicle that made them stars nor was it meant to be. They were doing it for fun; much like an old timers baseball game. They wanted to perform for their loyal fans and enjoy themselves in the process. Nothing serious was meant for this film and it would be interesting to see the outtakes. I am sure Audrey cracked up laughing a few times when she repeated some lines in this movie that she had said in some other movie over twenty years before. This movie was more of a pleasant retrospective piece than anything meant to be serious. Much like a 55 year old Mickey Mantle at bat at an old-timers game or Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra doing some stand up comedy together in the early 1990s. Without spending much energy on their part all of these old-timers could still be fun to watch. It is a great film to watch as long as you remember that it is not serious; nor meant to be. There is one serious note to all this that I would like to conclude with. This would have been an even greater film had Audrey not died prematurely just a few years later. That is the sad part about all this. Audrey, we miss you.
