The most outrageous crime drama that I have ever seen!
Two thumbs up to Farah Fawcett, Ryan O'Neal and the ever talented John Shea.
So much for being a dumb blonde - Farah rocked. She took being "unfit" to a whole new level. I thought I had seen the best in her in "Extremities" but she once again showed the "acting world" that she is a force to be reckoned with. Ryan has still got the good looks and the acting to go with it.
John Shea's portrayal of the Prosecutor was RIGHT ON! He exhibited a determination that wasn't his job . . . . it simply was the right thing to do for the protection of the children.
A must have for a movie collector (it needs to be in DVD form also)!
