Audience Reviews for Raffles


Pleasant, unremarkable comedy/drama with a super cast. This was Olivia's follow-up to GWTW much to her chagrin, her part of the devoted sweetheart was something that challenged her not in the least, and added fuel to the fire of her dissatisfaction with her Warners contract which ultimately lead to her suing for her release and a landmark decision limiting all contracts to a defined period without extensions.
