Storyline

Elizabeth Bentley is a successful lawyer who suddenly has some "punkish" daydreams of being "Rambo" right around the time her clueless boyfriend Brad asks her to marry him. After a therapy session, she quits her job to the surprise of her family and Brad, and goes into the detective business, opening her own private-eye office. Unfortunately, the ghost of the private-eye who owned the office still lingers and Elizabeth's the only one who can see or hear him. At first, she becomes an unwilling partner in Nick Peyton's unfinished investigation, but then she finds herself falling for the salty, but dead, guy. Written by Vina Vo <vilivo@erols.com>

Excellent ......
7 November 2005 | by See all my reviews

I must say that this my fave among Jaclyn Smith's movies --welll, with the exception of "The Bourne Identity," this is my " special fave." I remember that during this time, Smith wanted to shake her halo and do more comedy but it didn't happen. Sad to say, this is probably the lowest rated among her movies in the Nielsen chart when it was shown many "moons" ago. It was released during Christmas time and we all know it's not a good idea to have movies like this competing with any movie with Christmas stories (!!!) But in all aspects, this is I reckon is excellent. Smith is wonderful and Bernsen is an actor always worth watching on the small screen.

Smith proves once and again that she is still the undisputed Queen of TV Movies!
