Oh how long did that film go on for??? Geez.

It’s got a big enough budget, great cast, production quality was wonderful with all period costumes and authentic horses and everything but it’s so damn boring you would not believe!

I mean, it’s a made-for-middle-of-the-day TV romance. Some of the facts about who did what are a bit dubious as well and the script between the two main girls – both of whom are lovely but don’t need to bring any of their considerable acting skills to bear here – is dull, dull and even a little more dull on top with dull icing and a portion of really chewy dull in the middle. Not sure why they bother with Eric’s role as Henry here is a complete waste of time. Might as well have been a cardboard cut out.

My question would be what band-wagon were the producers on at the time they thought it would be a good idea to make.

Dreadful and a waste of money. Don’t. Just don’t.

DVD Extras: None. Just as well. I don’t think I could have taken any more.

Watchability (once, twice, etc.)
Keep DVD?
Watch if on TV?
Hug, Snog, Marry, Avoid?
Not often I say this about a well produced film but Avoid.
