Roses are for Sharon Wyatt
18 October 1999 | by (montreal,canada) – See all my reviews

If you're a soap opera lover, you'll be in your glory with this one. Granted, the situations are contrived and predictable at best. But it's not terrible! The talent involved raises it a notch or two above your standard soap fare. Lisa Hartman makes a spunky heroine. Bruce Dern is his usual brilliant self, but the real kudos go to General Hospital alumni Sharon Wyatt as the vindictive sister-in-law.(Can someone please tell me why this gifted lady doesn't get more parts?) She's nothing short of amazing, and her performance here is Emmy-calibre.

In short, there are worse ways to kill a few hours.
