Don't Bother
9 September 2005 | by fubared1See all my reviews

This is an excruciatingly dull, lifeless adaptation of what certainly must have been a much better short story. The acting is particularly poor, so one is not surprised that the lead actors remain total unknowns. I find it difficult to believe that they couldn't have found a more interesting, less 'gay' leading man. Believe me, this one is as obvious as Richard Simmons, and totally unbelievable in the role. The leading lady is only marginally better, but is certainly no 'Zelda'. A real disappointment considering this is PBS, but then some of the other short story adaptations I've seen have been equally disappointing. Text Text Text Text
