Body Language (1992-TVM)
23 September 2003 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

**½ out of **** (good, above-average)

Effective made-for-TV thriller has Heather Locklear as a high-class female executive whose new secretary (Linda Purl) is trying to take over her life. Locklear does a fabulous job creating the emotionally shattering social life of Betsy, and Linda Purl is excellent as the psychotic new secretary, Norma. While performances are very good, director Arthur Allan Seidelman seems to have some scenes going on forever, and he has a shot fixation for shoes that we notice as soon as the film begins. Overall, an above-average TV flick that I would recommend seeing. One of the better from Paramount's Wilshire Court series.

Rated R for Violence
