Holiday In Handcuffs

I'd never heard of it, easy since it was made for TV. If you are a Sabrina The Teenage Witch fan, you'll enjoy this silly little movie.

It's advertised as part of the 25 days of Christmas selection. These are usually pretty stupid and this is no exception, but with this movie, the stupidity works!

Some of the "racey" jokes are too stupid, and too "objectionable" to really be comfortable, so this really isn't suitable for family viewing. June Lockhardt (Timmy's mom on Lassie) is really good, why did they give her those embarrassing lines?

Sometimes we stumble upon a movie that we know nothing of and find that we have discovered gold!

This little gem is one of those. Just a great period piece, very Victorian, very English and very thought provoking. When it was over, Jeanne and I both said, "Huh!" not a question but an exclaimation of satisfaction. We had both been held, mesmerized for the lenth of the video which we viewed by streaming on Netflix.

This is not an action blockbuster, but a quiet, elegant, thought provoking piece of entertainment.
