I love this movie with Joe Penny!! should be out on DVD...
3 September 2012 | by (Minneapolis) – See all my reviews

I love this movie with Joe Penny! It's one of those movies IMO that you could watch over and over again. Very well Acted! Joe Penny and Lisa Hartman Black have such great chemistry together. Also just watching Joe Penny in this role is awesome! He has such charisma on screen. Joe Penny is a talented actor and played this role of Dr. Betters very well. This story line keeps you interested throughout the whole movie plus Joe Penny in the pool scene whoa!! Joe Penny is HOT!!! I really wish this would come out on DVD or would be aired more often on the Cable Networks. It's a movie that shouldn't be missed and because Joe Penny is in it!
