Reviews
Mine: Very enjoyable and an interesting look at the news business. Holly is terrific.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Appealing and intelligent comedy about a highly charged, neurotic woman who's a successful TV news producer, and her attraction to a pretty-boy anchorman who joins her network--and represents everything she hates about TV news. All three stars are fine, but Brooks is a special standout as an ace reporter, and Hunter's best friend, who's really in love with her. Nicholson (who won an Oscar for director Brooks' TERMS OF ENDEARMENT) contributes a funny unbilled performance as the network's star anchorman. Written by the director; set and filmed in Washington, D. C.
