Break out the tisues.By Jim Laurie from Tunbridge Wells, England , 02 Sep 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]The girls in my family reckon that this is the best 'weepy' of the lot. But that shouldn't prevent the boys enjoying one of Michelle Pfieffer's cleverest performances as a 'wannabe' TV presenter. Clever casting has Robert Redford as her mentor and the pair of them sizzle. No gratuitous sex so most of the family can watch. A mostly happy, sometimes dramatic, love story with a heart-breaking ending. Very, very enjoyable.

You feel like you're there in the studioBy PoloBeanScotland (32 reviews) , 23 Oct 2011Wonderful love story, lots of passion, lots of chemistry between Pfeiffer (looking stunning throughout) and Redford, the casanova of the newsroom. At the same time we're offered a real insight into how TV news in the late seventies/early eighties actually worked, and the kind of people who lived that life. You feel like you're there in the studio. I loved it.

Irritating and bad actingBy a customer from Leicester , 17 Sep 2010With two good actors, thought we would like this but found it irritating and a bit stupid. Not my kind of film after all. Predictable, and so only watched about 1/2 hour of it. Perhaps it got better, but we didn't wait to see!
Could have been betterBy LizB (71 reviews) from Nottingham , 12 Sep 2010This film was not as good as I'd hoped, nevertheless it was well acted and there was great chemistry between the leads. Worth renting.
