Her screenplay is like her novels : repetitive, boring and a bit addictive (web)
31 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

For me, Collins is a true pen name because she invented an exciting formula but unfortunately, she has this only recipe and the moment you have tested it, all her work is the same : Hollywood life, mega stars, stars on the decline, disturbing past, criminal plots, couples on the edges, steamy meetings…

So, everything is here in this « Lady Boss ». With two episodes of 90 minutes, i don't think she has cut a lot of pages from her novel and the movie is really sluggish and very talkative all the more than she has a lot of characters under her belt.

But, it's Hollywood life, with mansions we can never enter or live inside whatever we work all our life and it's about people who are free of any material cares and paradoxically who don't realize their chance !

The best quality of this movie is young Kim Delaney, who was thin at this time ! Before long seasons of « NYPD Blue » in which she stuck to Grey pants and deep concern, it was great to see her dress lightly and smiles ! In addition, she was the perfect pick to be the boss as she seems indeed to be a woman who can really take charge !
