An engrossing tale with some fine performances
17 April 2000 | by King_OpossumSee all my reviews

Although this film has the air of being quite roughly put together, and the leading lady (Yasmine Bleeth of BAYWATCH fame) is quite clearly out of her depth, this story is both moving and poignant. It deals with the very real issue of Talk Shows, and how they affect the guests. This relatively new genre of TV show is quite obviously very cheap and is hugely popular with audiences, but they have often been attacked for their treatment towards their guests. These people become no more than exhibits in a zoo of failed society - does this help them or drag them even further down?

There is some very good acting to be found in this made-for-TV movie, most notably young Jenny Lewis, who plays the teenage mother who's life is exposed on 'The Howard Grant Show'. Her portrayal of a girl who desperately wants to lead a normal life is moving, and sympathise with her struggle against society dragging her back down. I felt the scenes in the studio were a little contrived, and maybe the director was shy of allowing his cast to fall completely into the situation.

Nevertheless this film will keep you hooked, and doesn't fail to touch and move you.
