Barbara Eden played a pretty widow who served as the head writer for a hit soap opera who real life - dealing with the show's mean-spirited star and troubled producer at work and her son and her boyfriend at home - is also a soap opera.
Col. Nelson is on a long-term, top-secret space mission. Jeannie cannot bring him home (temporarily) to hear their son's important academic presentation without knowing exactly where he is in the first place. The general in charge of the mission won't reveal anything. Things are further complicated when Jeannie's sister (Jeannie II) reminds Sham-Ir, the head of the genies, that a genie on Earth cannot go more than 3 months without an earthly master. (Col. Nelson is no longer Earthly, being in space.) Sham-Ir give Jeannie I a fortnight (14 days) to either find Col. Nelson or get a new master, a single male. (Col. Healy can't help, since he's now married.) Written by
Barbara Eden is probably my favorite T.V. actress of all time she did her movie time in the 50's and early 60's. But what she did in this movie is almost a crime. I mean how can a 60 year old woman look so good in a Jeannie costume. She has the body of a 30 year old in this I'm still in shock and I saw this movie six years ago. She even had me debating with myself if she had a body double through half the movie when I then realized that would've been impossible. I could keep writing about how shockingly beautiful she was but I really shouldn't be shocked she has always been gorgeous. So I'll get on with the movie. Her husband (tony) is lost in space and after a certain period of time is gone I think 30 days she's going to have to go back home if they can't find tony. So she has to go find a new master naturally her sister jeannietwo shows up and tries to mess up the situation even more. It was a watchable movie and if you were an I dream of Jeannie fan like I've been my whole life since I was 4 even at four I thought I was going to get in trouble for watching it because of her outfits in the show. Eventually I realized I wasn't going to get in trouble though. You might think I'm nuts for giving this movie a 10 but I can't change it Barbara Eden was just too good looking in this movie to give it anything lower.
