User Reviews

Berkoff and Collins at their peak.
9 February 2003 | by avocet_crossSee all my reviews

I think this might be Joan Collins best motion picture, at least according to my taste. I've seen nearly all of her movies. Altough Stephen Berkoff used most of the screen time, I think it is just to keep up with Joan's awesome presence. The photography is excellent. The tone hilarious. I wish I could find it on DVD, as I'm sure digital quality would only make it even more pleasureable. Simple as it is, it probably is one most memorable movie, one of my top 10 favourite, for sure. Joan's Midwinter's Tale wouldn't be far behind. Or The Stud, and The Bitch, for that matter.
