Wonderful! !
12 November 2001 | by wpatrickSee all my reviews

This is a wonderful program about the I Love Lucy show. I grew up with Lucy and Desi and have seen every single episode (even the original unaired first show). And thanks to their genius in film, my children enjoy the show. I especially liked the presence of such greats as Lily Tomlin, Andy Garcia, Dick Van Dyke and Lucy and Desi's children, Desi Jr. and Lucie. If you are a Lucy fan this is a definite must see. On a scale of 1-10 ----- 10!!!
