Excellent Performance
6 May 2003 | by (Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

Mary Tyler Moore and Dick Van Dyke were absolutely marvelous in this performance. The chemistry between them is remarkable. They play off of each other as if they had done it every day since the Dick Van Dyke show. A definite must see for fans of either.
