I simply love Bruce Greenwood in this movie...
30 July 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Even though it is an old movie, actually filmed in 1989, I simply love that movie... I love Bruce Greenwood in it... I love his charm, gorgeous looks, and the easy manner with which he acts out the story. He takes on these many, many impersonations, with many, many accents which he does SUPERBLY... He is a natural... It is hard to take your eyes off him to pay attention to the other actors... But you do notice Gregg Henry, his sidekick. The comraderie they have with each other in real life, adds to the realism of their friendship on screen...I recommend it hightly, if you can find it... maybe one day they will air it again...
