It doesn't get any better than this
20 October 2000 | by See all my reviews

Swoosie Kurtz is always good, but in this picture she is absolutely great. What a shame that, cast in a supporting role in a TV movie that is seldom re-run, such a brilliant performance should not be better known. The picture itself is worthwhile, though not terribly original. But all hail Swoosie for the performance of a lifetime. See the movie, spread the word, and send her a nice fan letter. You won't have to be asked twice.
