Wacky slightly above-average TV movie. Shields is quite good.
21 July 1999 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Some interesting film and editing techniques for a TV movie. Probably would have had more impact if originally broadcast in '96 as intended. The wackiness gets a little tiring at times, but the fresh approach makes up for it. Quite a good job by Shields. It's hard at first not to be aware that it's "Brooke Shields," but her growth as an actress and her seemingly natural flare for comedy allows you to eventually just enjoy her character. She seemed to be having a blast. I laughed out loud a couple of times. Worth at least one viewing.
