Wooly Bully
24 September 2005 | by (MidWest) – See all my reviews

That song was "Wooly Bully," by Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs.

I hope this is a pilot that turns into a series. Kathy Bates is always good, and this TV movie is no exception.

I could identify with her throwing herself whole-heartedly into whatever she chose, especially the medical things. Some of us do that. Finding something that feels like your life has purpose is important, but so is not taking yourself too seriously.

This was a good Lifetime movie, worth watching. It won't keep you riveted to your seat, but it will take you nicely along a comfortable path with great scenery.
