Surprisingly, very good!
3 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Television movies generally do not come any better than this. Kirstey Alley takes over from Judith Light in the role of queen of the TV movies, and in that role she is a highly entertaining actress. Her comedic skills are among the best, and she is also competent in dramatic scenes. Graeme Clifford is a very talented veteran director who is responsible for at least one of my favorite films, "Frances" (1982), starring Jessica Lange. It was less of a shock how good this film was when I realized he directed it. The writers were also on top of their game, with many tongue in cheek references to classic films that probably half of the audience will miss. It enriches the film, though.

The film is funny and there are moments when you will laugh out loud, or simply be enraged by how snobbish and ageist some of the 'suits' in the business are. In that respect, and in many others, this film is true to life. The representation of the job market, and how some employers fail to see the strengths in certain people, seemed accurate. The character development and performances were top notch, and the score was very nice.

Highly recommended!
