Two great women detectives (and actresses) successfully reunited.
29 July 2001 | by See all my reviews

It is usually wise to avoid most "return" television movies - but I loved Cagney and Lacey - The Return. The plot brings back two great characters - Cagney and Lacey - later in their lives. Things have changed. Lacey has quit the force and Cagney is now a lieutenant working for the D.A.'s office. They've lost touch, but circumstances bring them back together again. So, we get to watch two great actresses, Sharon Gless and Tyne Daly reprise two great roles. Mary Beth is trying to get back into the work force and is meeting with very little success and - stand back - Cagney is going through menopause. This movie remains true to the series. It is quality drama that concentrates on the personal lives and the interaction between two complex women dealing with a tough and dangerous job. Sharon Gless and Tyne Daly are amazing actresses playing two of the greatest characters ever portrayed on television. The movie isn't quite as great as the series, but what is? I recommend it as a good movie - especially for fans of Cagney and Lacey or for anyone searching for good drama about women.
