the wow of the Vow
5 January 2016 | by RavenGlamDVDCollectorSee all my reviews

This movie has been on my Hard-to-Find list ever since I began collecting. Anybody else out there searching for it, guess you could just as well give up boy. It is 'only a TV movie' and the general consensus when researching it, is that it wasn't really liked. Richard Grieco overplayed his part. Bottom line is that I would just absolutely love to see it again, but no DVD release, no trailer on the Net, not even a snippet. It also didn't even have a Wikipedia entry. So, two days ago, this fool attempted to create one for that rather strait-laced institution, armed only with (1) my faded memories (it's been about 20 years!), (2) a little bit of initial research on IMDb, and (3) my fanatic endurance.

I created the page, but it was sketchy as hell. I was also doing the same for two other 'pet projects', raising them up as little children, admittedly they were in basic embryonic stage. Wikipedia protocol demands a very strict approach, and 'this crazy IMDb bird' was sending out help-me notices to get to know the tricks of building the framework of the entry (I don't have the terminology for this; I have since found at that there is Wikipedia terminology for everything, but the average other IMDb birds submitting their jaded little reviews would be generally perplexed by the host of knowledge needed. I was terrorized and remain traumatized!) but to cut a long story short, Wikipedia didn't like my attempts and official notifications were received that they planned to delete them. Some knowledge was gained by myself, at that stage I already knew how to create links on Wikipedia, but thanks to my SOS's, I now know how to create those sub- columns with the larger lettering CAST, PLOT, RECEPTION, EXTERNAL LINKS, but okay... Getting back to the subject, an expert took over, one MichaelQSchmidt, and salvaged my attempts, generally keeping my efforts intact, just made it fit in properly by adding the necessary structures, and generally adding the little wee bits of technical info and external links.

So, I galvanized mighty Wikipedia into creating an entry for this forgotten movie. If not quite forgotten, then sadly neglected.

However, the two others that Mr. MichaelQ also picked up on, since got deleted by the administrators for still being too weak. A VOW TO KILL's entry is surviving hanging by a thread, mostly because it has been slightly fleshed out by the external links (Wikipedia is very, very big on links, it is the first thing a newbie editor has to realize, and I at least kicked off playing it exactly that way) but Mr. MichaelQ has made what I am 99,999% sure is a mistake. In the plot, he mentions that Larissa Laskin plays L.J. Berman, an unscrupulous conMAN... ??????? What the hey?

It's two decades later, I cannot remember the finer details of the story. No synopsis on IMDb and no way for me to see this movie, not ever, I know. But I'm pretty sure the guy missed the potty there.

My other big problem is that this review is to be posted in a forgotten corner of IMDb seen only by the one checking up on it now to see if it suitably fits in with IMDb criteria. I would love to shout out for help regarding clarification of the storyline, the existing ones on IMDb are only about the basic setup.

Okay, long-winded story. Movie itself: If you are as fortunate as to be here checking up to see if this title is worth watching on your Golden Oldies TV Channel (hey, it's only 20 years old!), rest assured that two decades later, some fool boy was still on about it, so, hell, there has got to be something to it. Oh, and Julianne Phillips made a pretty lead actress, and, yes, Richard Grieco was creepy.
