Definitely for Texans
19 June 1999 | by See all my reviews

This is a gem of a TV movie, especially for Texans. And as a TCU alum, I really enjoyed the brief allusions to the school and its not-so-hot football team. Dan Jenkins has a quirky writing style which he translated to the screen with aplomb. Swoosie Kurtz is a stitch and portrays the adventure-seeking housewife to the hilt. Although you won't see it in most of her biographies, this is one of Julia Roberts' early films, and she makes the perfect daughter for Leslie Ann Warren's character. Willie's brief and unexpected appearance will be enjoyed by his fans and is the perfect conclusion to this little treat.
