Not Bad, with a wonderful score by the great Les Baxter
12 January 2000 | by carolscoSee all my reviews

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the movie, it's quite engrossing and Lynda Carter gives a surprisingly good performance as the alcoholic driver. Much better than the usual Lifetime made for cable movie, and very nicely directed.

This features the last film score by movie music icon Les Baxter, and he gives the film a lot of support, very emotional, yet restrained. It's too bad most TV films can't have music as good as this.

Overall, a worthy effort, well directed, acted and scored.
