Never Made It Up High Enough!
13 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was thrilled that Jean Smart and Mary McDonnell were going to do a sitcom probably inspired by the British comedy, Absolutely Fabulous, about two upper class spoiled New Yorkers. Faith Prince was terribly underused and under-rated. She was supposed to be huge after her triumphant performance in Guys and Dolls opposite Nathan Lane but Smart and McDonnell did what they could with a terrible script. I was hoping that the show would last longer than it did which was only a few episodes. Both actresses are accomplished veterans of the sitcom genre that they should have used their experiences to make this show better. Maybe the idea of two rich and spoiled divorced women are reminiscent of The First Wives Club. I didn't care for that much neither.
