Surprisingly Poor
20 August 2006 | by See all my reviews

In the spirit of fairness, I never saw this movie until 2006, so I am not sure that I saw an uncut version. I would like to believe that late night TV edited the movie beyond recognition. That would give us an excuse for how bad it was. I was a fan of the late John Spencer. I was a nut for the West Wing and thought that his work in that program and LA Law was outstanding. I was a regular viewer of Charlie's Angels. Jaclyn Smith's contribution to that program was steady and respectable. I was looking for better work from both of these actors than this movie offered. Admittedly, the dialogue and plot line were never going to produce Emmy nominations but this was slow and disappointing. Both actors' performances were halting and flat. This let me know that Ms. Smith is not multi-dimensional as an actor. But I have seen much better from Mr. Spencer. In my opinion, Michael Nouri gave the best performance as the doctor. Too bad.
