The affectations of the 80's....
14 November 2006 | by MarieGabrielleSee all my reviews

and this was before Oliver Stone's "Wall Street". Yes, every girl wanted to be living in NYC struggling to get ahead, and finds her success defending a prisoner who she gets off through several motions to the NY Appeals Court on Center Street.

Well, this is not a bad film, although Ken Howard (Senator Warner) seems less desirable than Armanda Assante (mafia don). Jaclyn Smith looks lovely as ever. Armand Assante as Michael Moretti. Ken Howard as a standard Senator Warner. John Glover (always a good character actor) as Scanlon.

If times are very bad, something like this is good escapism. Jaclyn Smith as struggling attorney Jennifer Parker, who eventually makes it to the top of the legal profession. Sidney Sheldon wrote "I Dream of Jeannie" as well, so take it lightly. 6/10.
