I love this "Made for TV movie".... 1990
Verified purchase
The actress DONNA Mills ..just turned 80 years old this year in 2021. Can you believe it..?? She certainly has redefined ..what a television actress ..can do. Forget about the reviews .. their obviously a bunch .. of "CLOSED MINDED" individuals. Even though this movie was made over 30 years ago... The subject matter is rather tame .. by 2021 standard's.. Nobody is living in the "Socially repressive 1950's" any longer. Women can have career's ... date whom ever she select's.. A socially prominent FEMALE ... can choose to live ..her life on her own term's.. without Malicious"... or after thought ..?? Miss Mills is also online ... Not sure if she's still acting..? The guy who played her "Personal assistant".. and lover ... is played actor Brian Wimmer . Very attractive ...and .. a total "Beef cake".. Flash forward .. actress Courtney Cox was in a tv show named "Cougar's"... Sound familiar ...

Not for Children
Verified purchase
Don't trust the rating on this movie. I would definitely not let my children watch it. Multiple conversations about sex and the heroine in bed with 3 different men preclude that.

Beautiful Blast from the Past
Verified purchase
This was one of my favs from the 90s as it would play on Lifetime TV from time to time. Brian Wimmer was famous from China Beach and Donna Mills brings class to all her roles, including this cheesy bite. Don't overthink it, millennials! In the 90s women were still expected not to aim too high, career-wise and to focus on finding a husband and start a family (esp attractive women). Thank goodness we have all evolved and of course, this inter-office romance would be inconceivable by today's standards! It's incredulous to realize that Donna was 48-49 when she filmed this for release in '90. This was waaaay before botox, fillers, laser, and lipo took hold so she appears to be a natural beauty who took exceptional care of her skin and diet.

So overtly bad it's actually good!
Verified purchase
Supremely bad in only the way exceedingly cheesy 80's made-for-tv movies can be! Donna Mills is chewing on the scenery all over the place trying to get this bag of cliches to fly, and it just makes you wonder how much she wished she could get material like _When Harry Met Sally_ to work with; it's a cinch her career would have been a lot bigger than _Knott's Landing_ or whatever other 80s night-time soap it was that she worked on. Brian Wimmer who plays her love interest Alex Dante played his part well too, but oof, what a dog of a plot they had to work with! Actually, all the players did a decent enough job, it was just a really poor script to work with, about on par with some late night Skinimax flick, only w/o any T&A to redeem it. Even with all its faults, it is diverting enough that you can enjoy it for its sheer hokum. Donna Mills is a delight to watch, as always: what a cutie pie she was! Make you wish she'd done more rom-coms; I'll bet she could have given Meg Ryan a run for her money as rom-com queen of the '90s! ;-)

Cute little romance.
Verified purchase
I hadn't seen this movie since it first came out in 1990 but it always stuck with me. The last few years i had been wanting to see it again but never remembered the name of the movie and the actress so i did a random google search of the movie description and bam, got it! I was so excited to find it on Amazon!! Reviewers are right about the cheeziness but wow, the chemistry between the two main characters is so worth watching.

Woman in Power Loves a Man Who Works for Her
Verified purchase
This is a 1980s romantic movie, a love story about a male secretary and his female boss. It was a period when women started to be in position of power. This movie offers a glimpse on how one woman used her position and how one man responded. Cute fun movie. In some circles, they would find this movie to be an excellent way to discuss the potential for harassment if they were not in love.

Boss/Secretary Cliche
Verified purchase
It's almost a cliche that successful men run off with their younger secretaries. No surprise that a successful woman would do similarly. Having been a super typist myself at a young age, even briefly ran a publicly accessible secretarial service, I had no doubt about Alex being a successful secretary. Alex marrying his former female boss was only part of the ongoing cliche (no parallel in my own situation). While many licensed professional liars make a full time business out of sexual harassment suits based on such close business relationships and the preponderance of subsequent divorce racketeering, such thoughts were at most a slight delaying factor for Brenda. Recognizing the social fiction involved in this story, a viewer of this well choreographed and produced film can only wish the couple will "live long and prosper".

Title doesn't fit the film...
Verified purchase
… except for a single line. It's cute in a pre-feminist kind of way (maybe about 10 seconds' worth), when the lead keeps saying that she doesn't want to get married, but that's all she really wants after all….

Basically, a big "Bleah…"
