It really is a much deeper movie than it lets on. Although a TV movie from 2003, this came out on DVD last year, and looks very much like a motion picture. I recommend it to all. It is a joy to see Peter Falk acting so well - and like somebody mentioned - it seems like an extension of his role in the Princess Bride. I'll be watching this again at the weekend :)
