I can't really rate this nonsense. It is a rather boring movie with the not so talented Donna Mills of TV fame in the leading role of a woman running around searching for something. Miss Mills spends most of the film footage brushing her hair out of her face. Did anyone ever think of hairspray or bobby pins? It became so annoying that I could even predict when she'd do it next. Her straw like hair seemed much too long for someone her age and frizzy and constantly hanging in her face. Then add her over the top make up which at times made her look like a raccoon with too much dark rings around her eyes and too much lip gloss. Wearing too tight dresses and high high heels, she came off more like a Victoria's Secret model. Her acting has always been on a one level style without too much going on in her blank stares into the camera.
Stephen Collins does a bit better with his role. Although he goes back and forth from Mills to another blonde bimbo on roller blades with an IQ of 0. So much for his integrity. As an actor I admire his body of work which has been for several years now. He can do better than this. He and Mills had no chemistry between them. Hard to believe they even liked each other. Derek de Lint plays a lack luster character and we are graced with the presence of such distinguished actors as Claire Bloom and Ian Richardson in thankless roles. At least there was some class in this loser. Don't waste your time with this unless you have nothing else to do. Based on a book by Barbara Taylor Bradford. Who is Barbara Taylor Bradford?
