This was one of those movies you would watch if you liked the original series. It is dire in the extreme. You keep thinking something exciting is going to happen throughout and it never does. Perhaps one should have been wary of the vanity "Producer: Stefanie Powers" credit at the start of the show; followed up after 120 minutes of pure snooze by "Executive Producer: Robert Wagner". There is no pace in the show nor any sense of intrigue or danger. It seems to be a way to showcase Sydney and the Sydney Opera House. It really makes you wonder how something like this ever got produced. Save two hours of your life and avoid.
The only attraction of "Harts in High Season" is Robert Wagner and
Powers. Despite having aged a good 20 years since their hit TV series
to Hart", they look the same. Their on-screen chemistry is good as ever.
Otherwise, this movie is quite bad. Jonathan Hart (Robert Wagner) has to
clear his name after being framed in Australia for what seems to be a
murder. But he and his wife do not seem to be perturbed by this
circumstance as they go about trying to resolve it. Both Wagner and
don't seem to be taking their roles seriously. While trying to prove
Jonathan's innocence, the couple get into several sticky situations. Yet
there is no suspense in this flick. The film's end is cliched. And
unnecessary, as the Harts' troubles are essentially over 30 minutes before
the film ends. I suppose the director had to stretch the film's length by
half an hour with a "filler". There is also a 7 foot, 400 pound black
villain named Tonga who seems to be there solely to be a racial
This telefilm could have been an enjoyable light-hearted adventure. It had the right ingredients, namely the actors, the exotic Australian locale and a good though hackneyed plot.
the movie is watchable but poorly written.
it seemed like they just stuck to a basic outline when making this telefilm as the story is missing several key elements of a crime of this sort.
for example, foul play is suspected in the death of a multi-millionaire and there is no press interest?
it also lacks a substantial police investigation.
i could go on, but there's really no point.
if your desperate for some Hart to Hart action, then i would suggest you seek out episodes of the TV series.
if this is the only thing on t.v., then i would suggest you read a book or do something creative(like going on the internet and writing a sub-par review of a blase film - hahahaha)
