Great John Ritter Film!
1 November 2004 | by whpratt1See all my reviews

I thought that I had seen all of John Ritter's TV films and movies and this film took me by surprise. It was great seeing John looking so healthy and very sad knowing that he passed on to a stage in HEAVEN and a higher level of experience. John Ritter,(Rick Knowlton),"Manhood",'03, was a successful business man and wanted to better himself and his wife in a larger home in a crime free neighborhood. Hal Linden,(Philip Denig),"Barney Miller",'75 TV Series, managed to make Rick's dream home become a reality and things were working out just fantastic. June Lockhart,(Mrs. Billingsley),"Lassie",'54 TV Series, helped Ricks children get situated in their new school programs. This is truly a great film with veteran actors and a very interesting and entertaining story.
