Good acting, excellent music and an interesting story line.
2 March 2001 | by (Tulsa, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

Unfortunately this made for t.v. movie is not easy to come by and has not seen a lot of air time, but should you be lucky enough to watch it, you will enjoy the music, the story and the acting. It's listed as a comedy, though I have to say it seemed more like an off beat drama. Overall an excellent show to watch.
