Terrific movie. Certainly one of the very best.
6 March 2003 | by (Seattle, WA) – See all my reviews

Everytime I see this tv-movie I can't help but get emotional. I'm sure Alda, Farrell, Swit, et. al. felt the way their characters felt when it was time to say goodbuy. Working 11 years together!!. It was about the best tv show ever. I still watch the re-runs. I wish there was a way to buy the DVD version. I'd do it no matter what the cost. If Hawkeye and Margaret's goodbuy kiss wasn't the longest in movie history it certainly rates as one of the longest.
