THE worst of the pretentious 80s/90s telemovies!
6 August 2004 | by (Perth, Australia) – See all my reviews

This is the total dregs of the pretentious, morally patronizing "let's deal with a controversial social issue in a very melodramatic way" style of telemovie that was so prevalent in the 'politically correct' late 80s and early 90s.

I would lay money on the fact that this script was written by a lawyer. Every single character quotes the legal precedent for their case with so much technical precision that it would make a top-class university legal professor seem like a dunce by comparison. The suspension of disbelief in this script is totally non-existent.

And worse the actors play the characters with such irritating heavy moral fortitude that the whole thing looks and feels like an obvious political lecture, done with such heavy-handedness that even infamous Nazi Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels would roll in his grave with embarrassment.

And I'm not even going to give this film an ounce of credibility by stating what my personal stance on the subject is. This alleged professional production should make anyone from the whole political spectrum cringe with shame! Whatever your politics are, this is totally abysmal filmaking!!!

I am definitely wondering, with the infamous Hollywood committee system, how such such an abominable script even got close to getting green-lighted? It's a total mystery!
