Fans of the "Rockford Files" series will be glad to see the return of Jim Rockford and some of his supporting players, and many elements of the series make this telefilm watchable. The plot of this film is not the best, however; the central mystery is neither intricate nor particularly suspenseful. What dominates the action is a prevalent cynicism about our show business society in general and Hollywood in particular. The guest actors do a fine job, particularly Joanna Cassidy and Geoffrey Nauffts, but the tawdry little story at the center of the film leaves a bitter taste in the mouth.
