Dreadful TV Movie
9 July 2012 | by (Huntsville, Alabama) – See all my reviews

I made the mistake of watching this slow moving drama on a cable channel. Obviously created as a stage production I found it plodding and annoying. Living in the south I found the phony Southern accents overdone, as usual, and unrecognizable. There were too many characters and the males were difficult to sort out because they all looked similar. The constant bickering which began immediately was grating and continued throughout the movie until I was urging the movie to end and get the misery over. The acting was dreadful and reminiscent of a high school production. The fact that writer Foote had two of his relatives in the cast should have been ample warning not to watch this drivel. Like many others I'm sure, I find it difficult to view Jean Stapleton as anyone other than Mrs. Archie Bunker.
