A Surprise Find!
10 December 1998 | by Giac-3See all my reviews

I actually got this movie in the theatre years ago. I have since picked up a copy of the video for my own collection. It is surprisingly engaging. I also think it is the best performance Alec Baldwin has ever given. You will care about these characters, and care about their happiness.
