Whodunnit Disaster Film
26 June 2003 | by SargebriSee all my reviews

What do you get when you combine The Airport Movies with Murder, She Wrote? You get this rather pedestrian movie of the week. This film has all the traits of this kind of film, actors on the downside of their careers giving lousy performances and a rather unbelievable plot line. The only thing that you can say about this film is that we get to see a pre-Charlie's Angels Farrah Fawcett and that's it.
