Storyline

It has been two years since Bobby and Sue Ellen Ewing took over control of Ewing Oil. Although J.R. is successfully managing a large oil conglomerate, he wants to once again own his father's company. When he discovers that Ray Krebbs' land, which is heavily mortgaged, has undiscovered oil on it, he knows that if he plays his cards right, he can purchase the land and have enough money to regain control of Ewing Oil. But his business rival Carter McKay also has his eyes on Ray's property, and may soon join Bobby and Sue Ellen as an executive at Ewing Oil. Both parties hatch schemes in order to get what they want.

One to miss
18 September 1999 | by (UK & Germany) – See all my reviews

This is an extremely poor movie with a very weak plot and an ageing cast - not that age is necessarily a bad thing, but surely the most logical thing to do would have been to include some of the next generation Ewings to support the old stalwarts. Although Linda Grey (Sue Ellen) still looks fabulous for a woman of 50-odd and Patrick Duffy (Bobby) hasn't changed much apart from some grey hairs, the main character, Larry Hagman's J.R., is looking very old and jaded now. My main beef with this movie, apart from the lack of new blood and poor plot, was the very small cast. Southfork is decidedly empty these days, and having Sue Ellen living back there at all and on (almost) friendly terms with J.R. is, to my mind, stretching credibility to the limit, even by the standards of U.S. soaps. Let's hope that if there are any more Dallas reunion movies, the makers will have the good sense to include some younger blood - why not bring J.R.'s son John Ross (who'll now be well into his 20s) back as a younger, even more evil, nasty version of the old J.R.? After all, he was an obnoxious, spoilt brat in the original series, and that would be a logical progression. As for this movie - don't bother unless you've absolutely nothing better to do.
