It's too bad Nick at Nite doesn't come up with a cable-channel for TV movies like this
28 May 2001 | by See all my reviews

Young people just discovering "Three's Company" from Nickelodeon would probably love to see the TV-movies the cast made during their summer hiatus (Suzanne Somers played a nightclub singer in "Happily Ever After", Joyce DeWitt played a prospective bride in "With This Ring" and John Ritter takes a dramatic leap here as a paraplegic). Casting Ritter as a wheelchair-bound horse-lover who finds love post-accident with none other than Carrie Fisher was a wild idea--even in 1978--but it pays off. It's a very sincere, heartfelt drama that surprises us not with its message but with the frank dialogue courtesy writer Paul Harrison and nice chemistry between the leads.
