Great Movie, Great Cast
15 October 1999 | by See all my reviews

This is a great movie!! It is much much better than most made for T.V. movies. Edward Kerr is so 'engagingly' charming and wonderful. I truly enjoyed his portrayal of lawyer Roy Guyton. Kathleen Turner is hilarious as the reporter/talk show host. The rest of the cast is equally good. All in all, this is a movie well worth watching.
