| great family comedy
Cindy Williams is perfect for the main character in this film. It is foul language free and still fun. Cindy finds herself desperate for money as her dog has become ill, the vet wants to perform surgery, and she is a single working class girl. She tries out for all kinds of bit jobs to add to her income and ends up acting in a commercial for dog food. The different situations that Cindy finds herself in and how she plays off against the commercial producer, Tony Randall, are hilarious. Our family has enjoyed our old VHS copy made from the TV show in the 80s and we laugh out loud every time that we see it. We think that more people would enjoy it as well. We would love to see it come out on DVD.
