Connie Stevens Should Stick to Singing
28 December 2012 | by See all my reviews

This had the makings of a good movie, but was thoroughly spoilt by the bad directing and terrible acting. One or two could act reasonably well, the rest were awful and so was the music score.

I had the feeling that Connie Stevens, cast the parts to friends and family, and used her choice of music from the past. She also wrote the story line and directed....that says it all.

Tatum O'Neal was dreadful and her terrible acting destroyed the movie.

Such a shame because the storyline had the makings of a good movie

I think the first review (and only other one), was posted by one of the team from the movie.
