5 out of 10 about right.....
7 August 2005 | by See all my reviews

We recently bought another movie, and received this one as a bonus (it was originally priced $8, then $5. We got it for a penny). Jayne Brook is a cutie-pie, and Dyan Cannon is still attractive (gorgeous in her prime, but she's had too many face-lifts).

This movie was okay, but very predictable, cliché-ridden, and completely unoriginal. As far as I'm concerned, the only reasons to watch it are Ms. Brook and Ms. Cannon.

Far from the worst movie ever made, but on the other hand, it's nothing special. If you rent it, make sure it's a freebie. For me, I'd say it's worth the price I paid for it.
