The Love Story of One of the Most Famous Couples Ever
2 August 1999 | by IrisNo11See all my reviews

I thought that this movie was going to be very lame, but it was better than I thought it was. I didn't think that Jay Underwood could exactly match the REAL Sonny Bono's look, but Renee was a great Cher! I've seen the first episode of the Sonny and Cher show, and they made that different looking in the movie, but that is okay. I really enjoyed this tv movie! It's a lot better than it looks!
