Jane Seymour will knock your socks off!
10 October 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have fond memories of watching this cable TV movie with my grandma at her house several years ago. Oh my! Jane Seymour is so well known for playing "good" women, Dr. Quinn in particular. Here she shows she can play a very evil (yet vulnerable) villainess convincingly. Barry Bostwick is also good, as is Chad Allen (in a weird bit of casting, Jane Seymour's TV son from Dr. Quinn plays Barry Bostwick's son here). Anyway, one of the most entertaining and smart TV movies I've ever seen. Check it out on Lifetime!
