Trivia

Although her co-stars donned fake jewels, Elizabeth Taylor wore her own in the film. Recalled executive producer Ilene Amy Berg, "The first scene she did with her sapphire and diamond bracelet and earrings and wearing the diamond that Richard Burton had given her. By the time we did her last scene the necklace was ready, so she wore that as well". See more »

Quotes

Wesley Westbourne: You and Miss Westbourne had... uyuh... relations with the director.
Addie Holden: Not at the same time, obviously.

"One more face lift and she'll be able to blow her nose through her forehead."
12 February 2001 | by (North Carolina) – See all my reviews

All I can say is I wish it could have lasted longer! Four absolutely brilliant actresses in one absolutely hilarious movie. Reynolds is darling as well as hilarious as girl-next-door type Piper Grayson, MacLaine is funny as eccentric Kate Westburn, Joan Collins is great as sex-pot type Addie Holden and Elizabeth Taylor is remarkable as tough agent Beryl Mason. Chalk one up for Jonathan Silverman as MacLaine's son Wesley, and for Peter Graves as Reynolds' husband Bill. Although at times rather... risque (it's a bit odd to hear sweet Debbie Reynolds say words such as *screw*), it's a TV movie that will be remembered, if only to be remembered as the film that rekindled the friendship between Debbie Reynolds and Liz Taylor. It's an absolute riot of a movie!
