"Hostage" is one of Carol Burnett's best.
6 December 1998 | by (Greenville, New Hampshire) – See all my reviews

Carol Burnett and real-life daughter Carrie Hamilton star in this outstanding and terrific film. Carol Burnett has always been known as a terrific comedic actress (which she is) but in this film she's very dramatic and does it well. Carol Burnett stars as Martha, who is recovering from the loss of her husband. One day while shopping she's kidnapped by Bonnie Lee Hopkin (Carrie Hamilton) who's just escaped from prison. En route to New York City they forge a friendship while on the run from Bonnie's father who's trying to get even with her for shooting him in the arm. Carol Burnett is a very funny actress and it pleases me to watch her being terrific as a dramatic actress in this truly outstanding film.
