Movie Info

Cable news anchor Christy Colleran (Kathleen Turner) and her cagey boss, John L. Sullivan (Burt Reynolds), have a long history together: They used to be married. But now Christy is set to leave journalism and her ex-husband forever by moving to New York City with her fiancé, retail mogul Blaine Bingham (Christopher Reeve). Since Sullivan still has feelings for her, he hatches a plan to keep Christy around by assigning her to a hot news story she can't resist.

  • Dec 12, 2011
    This movie use to come on the local TV channel all the time when I was a little kid & I think it use to be 1 of my favorites.After looking at it now, I'm not so sure anymore.It was a boring movie up until Ike Roscoe escaped & then thats when things turned around & the movie started getting funny.Its just a shame because its almost over by then & I felt like I wasted time watching the beginning of the movie

    Throughly ordinary remake of His Girl Friday, stick with the original.

    Effective performances by Kathleen Turner, Burt Reynolds, and Christopher Reeve, but this remake comedy media movie is very average, lack of laughs.
