Very enjoyable theatrical presentation
15 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Very enjoyable production. Sometimes 'real' theater get misplaced when a film is made of a stage production. This time, it was filmed on the stage and the reality of the theater was not lost. I thought it was better than the Marilyn Monroe version done some time ago. The entire play takes place in a diner and the only thing that separates that three acts is time - and that is only a few hours at most.

Great acting by Margot Kidder and the supporting cast, particularly Pat Hingle and Tim Mathison. Probably the best thing I've seen Margot Kidder in since her role in Superman. Some of the minor parts of the play were not brought out in the earlier movie but this time they became major aspects of the story and added quite a lot.
