Wish I could watch this again
30 June 2004 | by tanishalfelf3See all my reviews

I remember watching this on or near when it came out and absolutely loved it. I have been a fan of Richard Hatch and Bruce Davidson since then and even a bit before this show aired. Their performances in this movie really MAKE the movie.

The one scene that will always stick in my mind is when Richard Hatch's character (Jan Berry) has just been discovered by the audience to be lip-syncing to one of their songs. What he does to bring them back from the brink of getting up and walking out (or worse!) is truly awe inspiring.

Hope I can find this movie on DVD or even VHS if at all possible as it would be one to own in my opinion!
