Just Plain Fun
3 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Especially for a made-for-TV movie, this one is just fun to watch. Lauren Holly in particular makes this so enjoyable. You just have to love her character! And I do agree with those that note that her accent is really good -- as close to authentic as I've heard in most movies. In fact, southern accents are my pet peeve -- they are routinely done so astonishingly badly. It grates on me so badly that there are movies I know would probably have been OK except that the bad accents were too distracting and irritating. But Holly does great, and as a result of the thick accent, she nails this character spot on! No, it's not some amazing film due for classic libraries. But it IS much better than the vast majority of made-for-TV movies. The dialogue is believable, and even the over-the-top outfits make sense in context(the first time I saw it I walked in part-way through and saw one of the "undercover" outfits and burst into giggles thinking to myself, yeah, undercover in being just bizarre enough to work in New Orleans!). Definitely worth a couple of hours.
