User Reviews

never mind the plots, this is how tv should be
22 August 2002 | by grunselSee all my reviews

I dont think i have seen Tony Curtis so happy as he appears to be in this role. Whether its 'acting' happy or not, his and Moore's relationship lights up the screen, bringing cheerful escapist television into any living room.
