How do I find a The Counterfit Contessa?
7 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hi, I saw The Counterfit Contessa a couple of years ago and wondered how I can get the movie.... I love Tea Leoni!!! Along with all the characters. I can't find it anywhere. I saw it on FOX 51. If anyone could give me an idea of how to find this movie I would greatly appreciate it!!! I have wanted to see it again for so long. I thought this movie was a cute and romantic movie. I can't find it in the stores. I've tried taping it that one and only time I saw it, but I wasn't able to. I have tried everywhere. Please help me. I would love to find this movie!!! Whatever you can do, Thank you!!! PLEASE!!! Just write me.
