James Brolin had His Hands Full
25 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

This was a very entertaining film shown on Lifetime and it kept my interest from beginning to end. There is good reason you might have guessed how the story ends, however, you could have been easily fooled. Natasha Henstridge (Linda Cavanaugh),"A Better Way to Die",2000, played a sweet and very sexy evil gal, who enjoyed herself in every way possible and was bound and determined to over power everyone she came into contact with. James Brolin,(Hank Cavanaugh),"Traffic",2000, gave a great performance in the romantic department and even in the funeral parlor, which I did not think was necessary at all. If you want to see romance and flirting in the church, barn and everywhere, this is the film for YOU.
