This has got to be an extreme look at sexual harassment in the workplace. No way is every case, nor is a majority of cases this bad. Stephanie Zimbalist played her role well as the victim as did, for the most part, the dude who played her husband and the dude who owned the shoe company. What was a little odd was that this was set around people who worked for a shoe company. I guess that was to show that this type of situation could happen in any type of workplace. Maybe, though, they shoulda just stuck with this being a law firm or something similar, that way more people would have been able to connect with what was happening here. I mean, how many people work for shoe companies? Comparatively: not many. Anyway, it was odd seeing William Russ in the role of the bastard (I'm used to seeing him as Cory's dad in Boy Meets World repeats on The Disney Channel!) His character's behavior in this is what was so shocking. The things that came out of his mouth... definitely not a very nice person. Right off the bat I had no expectations this would be a good movie. Surprisingly it was a little better than I thought it would be but still nothing spectacular. Something else that probably would have made this movie more effective would have been if the harrassment portrayed here wasn't so strong and blatant. If it was a little mellower then all the women who watch this on Lifetime might be able to identify with it easier. Here it was almost unbelievable. My grade for this run-of-the-mill Made-for-TV movie: C-
