Let me get my time back!!!
15 December 1999 | by (Cut Bank, Montana) – See all my reviews

We all know that, it being a TV movie, there will always be something lacking from it. However, the Girl Gets Moe is inexcusable. The story itself lacks in virtually every aspect I can possibly remember, including fight scenes which are done only for the sake of waking the viewer up, and some of the cheesiest dialogue I've ever heard. In particular, the one where the man is stuffing a body into a trunk stays in my head. "Always buy American. They've got the biggest trunk space." How much did GM pay them to include THAT line in the movie? How can anyone possibly expect the star of "Who's the Boss?" to make a convincing mobster? How could anyone possibly care as to the outcome of this movie after seeing the first five seconds of it? Stay away from this movie!
