Ambitious but entertaining
23 February 1999 | by (US) – See all my reviews

This was a decent made for tv that tried to cover a lot of ground in 2 hours. The actress was outstanding in her ability to pick up on very subtle characteristics of Cher, who in her own right is extremely unique in many ways. It seemed like it was true, or at least factual, and believable enough to have had Cher's input, although she received no credits. Sonny's part was no big deal, but the inclusion of actual footage and the dedication was a nice touch.

As tv junk goes, this wasn't all that bad, and at least a 5 on a 10 scale.
