Mediocre at best.
25 November 2002 | by (palookaville) – See all my reviews

This is better then the Bette Midler vehicle but still doesn't work in my opinion. Michelle Lee looks a lot more like Susann then Bette Midler but she doesn't have Susann's spark, you need both. Lee produced this I assume because she wanted to play Susann. The same thing happened with Jessica Lange in the Patsy Cline story, she produced it, she played it, it didn't work,totally miscast. Bottom line: watchable but a missing something.
