What's not to like
8 June 2004 | by (California) – See all my reviews

No, this TV movie may not be particularly original, but remember, it came before many of the movies that it can be compared to. Maybe in 1989 when it was released, it was more original. Even if it wasn't...

It has humor, heart, fine performances by likable actresses. What's not to like? Personally, I love this movie. I just watched it tonight, and not for the first time. I'll record it onto video until someone releases it onto DVD. There may be corniness, but this is a harmless, endearing depiction of friendship that I completely enjoy watching.

I love Shelley Hack as the political, intelligent Kimberly and Sela Ward as the independent, sexy business woman Carol. Brooke Adams as Pat and Stephanie Faracy as Beth fill out the cast well as the unhappy housewife and the naive one with a big secret. No, maybe the problems these women have have been seen before...but almost twenty years after this movie has been made, women still have these problems, so...clichés are clichés for a reason.

However, this movie is carried by the chemistry these four women have and they have it in abundance.
