Trivia

Even with the stars attached, Elizabeth Taylor and Carrie Fisher couldn't get any studios interested in shooting the script as a feature film. Fisher remarked that studio executives believed the only audience the movie would attract is "a group of seniors huddled around the TV at the nursing home". See more »

"One more face lift and she'll be able to blow her nose through her forehead."
12 February 2001 | by See all my reviews

All I can say is I wish it could have lasted longer! Four absolutely brilliant actresses in one absolutely hilarious movie. Reynolds is darling as well as hilarious as girl-next-door type Piper Grayson, MacLaine is funny as eccentric Kate Westburn, Joan Collins is great as sex-pot type Addie Holden and Elizabeth Taylor is remarkable as tough agent Beryl Mason. Chalk one up for Jonathan Silverman as MacLaine's son Wesley, and for Peter Graves as Reynolds' husband Bill. Although at times rather... risque (it's a bit odd to hear sweet Debbie Reynolds say words such as *screw*), it's a TV movie that will be remembered, if only to be remembered as the film that rekindled the friendship between Debbie Reynolds and Liz Taylor. It's an absolute riot of a movie!
