Truly great! I can't believe this was a TV movie!
26 September 1999 | by ETLSee all my reviews

Some TV movies make you wish for suicide and others entertain you. Still others do not belong, they seem to be real movies. This is one of them... I think this is a greatest TV movie of all time and a damn good movie.
