A simple, but good movie with knockout Lesley
18 October 2003 | by vyto34See all my reviews

The movie is certainly not deep, but it has charm and has weathered much better than some other films of the hippy era. Lesley Ann Warren is luminous, sexy and a luscious knockout. Definitely one of her more appealing roles.
