I wish I could find a DVD/Video of this movie.
24 November 2004 | by alicat494See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this movie and would like to have a copy of it, but cannot locate it anywhere. I loved watching Genie Francis and Bruce Boxleitner together. The story is fast-paced and revolves around the rich and famous in the true 1980's style; with Tyger Hayes thrown into the mix. Genie Francis plays a very spunky, no-nonsense kinda gal and brings a company some pizazz. Donna Mills and Linda Evans bring their beautiful, rich personalities on screen. There is humor, romance, big business and some violence thrown together to make this a wonderful show to sit through. There are many stories to follow within the story - and they are equally exciting to watch.

If someone out there could help lead me to a website, or even the name of a store that carries it, I would sure appreciate the tip.
