A Lifetime movie of the week. Lackluster and typical.
1 October 2016 | by marigold_baySee all my reviews

I watched this expecting little and receiving even less. 1970's feminism with Farrah Fawcett screen time thrown in. Tough girl with big heart pursues difficult sport to prove something. The main characters female co-hort went between used, underhanded, sneaky and best friend. Because, you know, women never really pull for each other unless they are foreign and speak little English, as seen in last third of movie. Long blown out hair and perfect skin made this even less than a movie about mountain climbing in some ways. I was just endlessly reminded that it was a TV movie, and that makes any movie hardly worth interpreting.
