Honestly, I would have seen a better standard of acting if I had watched a school Nativity play. The plot is extremely good, and this film would have been a hit if the cast included some good character actors. Alas it is not to be. The standard of the two main performers (Loni Anderson and Carl Weintraub) is absolutely laughable - abominable all round acting, and neither of them can fake a cry whatsoever. In one scene Loni Anderson is acting out a faint - I have never laughed so much in my life while watching a film. She cannot make a convincing frightened expression at all. Patrick McNee is on his usual fine form, a pity he has a small part and not a principle role because I think he would have been able to drag this film up to be a very big hit, which alas with the current performance, it is quite rightly not so.
