Nothing Special, But Nice To See Gazzara & Smith Again
16 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a made-for-TV soap opera-crime story that I found much better than I thought I would. Despite all talk and no action, this wasn't boring and it kept my interest throughout.

Part of that was seeing two older television stars that I fondly remembered from past times: Ben Gazzara and Jaclyn Smith. Gazzara was best known, probably, for his role in "Anatomy Of A Murder" but I remember him in a lot of TV shows in the '60s and '70s. Meanwhile, although not a regular watcher of Charlie's Angels, I couldn't help but admire Smith's extraordinary beauty, which she still possessed in this 1992 film. So, it was interesting to see both of them later in life.

The story had two big twists in it, both involving Smith. The first one was a big surprise; the second, you could see coming. In all, okay but nothing special.
