It's Hepburn,what more do you need?
23 May 2005 | by (Phx. Arizona ("Arizona Smells Funny"!- Homer Simpson)) – See all my reviews

Having seen this,all I can say is that Irecall a very bright and fun performance by Miss Hepburn as well as the supporting cast. As far as TV films go,this is one of the better ones and I don't think any other cinematic actor does TV movies better than she.

Good news for those Hepburn fans out there by the way,on August 9th,2005...this movie will finally be available on home video! Yay!!! This will be a great chance to see it again for the first time in 17 years! If you haven't seen it then trust me it's worth it!

She plays the title character,a famous female writer who suddenly finds herself labeled out of touch with the everyday world. Meaning,she has no real knowledge of the everyday person. Her novels are usually about the rich & powerful.

Her close friend and business associate that brings her this news,along with the news that the publishing house has rejected her latest effort,makes a bet with her that she wouldn't last a week with a normal family. She ends up in a small suburban town called Hicksville. Moving in with a Dad ("Silver Spoons" Joel Higgins) a Mom and three kids). A loud teenage girl,a sarcastic boy and a toddler who cries at the sight of her!

She learns quickly that the rules of her world basically don't exist in theirs but she somehow works a few of them in. A side plot about Higgin's possible affair with a young co-worker makes for a more serious story. I wont ruin the rest for you!

For me personally,along with acquiring a copy of "Iron Petticoat",finally being able to purchase "Laura Lansing Slept Here" will complete my quest to view for the first time or re-view,all 52 of her films. I have it now :(Aug. 22nd,2005): and it's still as good as I recall! A great salute to you Miss Hepburn!
