Kathleen Turner (Christy Colleran), Burt Reynolds (John L.
Sullivan), Christopher Reeve (Blaine Bingham), Ned Beatty (Roy Ridnitz), Henry Gibson (Ike Roscoe)
television reporter takes on one last assignment before her upcoming marriage.
More a remake of His Girl Friday than The Front Page in the
respect that it keeps a woman as the main character. Still, it isn't a very good remake, with Burt Reynolds doing his usual and Christopher Reeve completely miscast to the point that his
performance is embarrassing to watch, especially with the desperately unfunny running joke that his character is afraid of heights (get it?).
