Strong, sincere TV-movie with Rocky Welch at her sexy best
28 April 2002 | by moonspinner55See all my reviews

Obviously based somewhat on Elizabeth Taylor's real-life experience checking into rehab and falling in love with another patient, this is nevertheless a colorful idea for a TV-movie and one of the best based on a Judith Krantz novel (who was churning out look-alike books for sometime during this period). Raquel Welch is in top form playing a boozy actress whose worried daughter (Alicia Silverstone!) convinces her to get medical help; once in rehab, Welch falls for a hunky firefighter trying to get sober (that is, when she's not doing her daily chores, like vacuuming). Could be camp, but it doesn't come off cartoony. Jack Scalia is a handsome rogue who looks good with Raquel, and the sparks in their relationship make the second-half of the film quite entertaining and even romantic. *** from ****
