Just about perfect marks

I just come across this movie on TV one morning and without realising it I got hooked. Not a great movie by any stretch of the imagination, but a movie that holds your attention all the way through. I thought Tracey Gold was very good and believable in the lead role. It has been a long time since I saw a movie with Bess Armstrong in it and it was good to see her again.
