So Campy, it's Kampy
For sheer camp, this TV movie is worth the while. If nothing else, it gives hope (however false) to the over-40 crowd that some young thing is available, even if he/she is 25 years younger.
Certainly Susan Lucci is not an actress worthy of an Oscar nod. On the other hand, she has been around a lot longer than many actresses, and she still commands an audience. David Charvet is much too good-looking in his role to have wanted/needed a fling with Lucci. But this is the sort of movie that begs you not to ask any questions...just go along for the absurdly amusing ride.
I knew I had seen Charvet somewhere, and it turned out he was a former "Baywatch Boy" from the 90s. Even if you don't care for Susan Lucci, this is still worth it for the over-the-top madness of it all.
I still catch it when it's rerun, and age makes it even more surreal and likable.
