Not bad for a HBO made for TV movie
10 October 2002 | by (Winnipeg) – See all my reviews

This film is an entertaining watch, not bad for a HBO movie. Denny's performance is good as usual; has a made in Canada feel, my guess probably Toronto. Toronto seem to substitute for many American cities. The film has a gutsy, realistic feel to it, and is made honestly. It you like reading books on these issues, you will like this film. Not a great film but I would watch it again. 6/10
