It gets better...

This TV movie was aired in two parts and I just saw them both. The first half is pretty schlocky, with bad accents running rampant and some bad casting. But the second half, although having that cheapo TV movie feel, isn't half bad. Louis Gossett Jr. as Sadat isn't as bad as it sounds, folks. Aside from the horrible accent, he does at least try and capture the spirit of the man. That extra who was cast as Golda Meir, she looked just like Golda Meir. That was really the most remarkable thing.
