Kate playing Kate
19 May 2005 | by andy-bradford3See all my reviews

This was a Katharine Hepburn film, it was written for her and no one else could have done it. Kate really is playing herself and there is nothing wrong with that. She descends on a family and changes their lives completely. It reminded me of that old Bette Davis film 'The Man Who Came To Dinner' although not in the same league. The story is slight and not up to the standard of Kate in her prime but its a feel good film and thats something we need more of. Good meaty roles were then as they are today in short supply for an actress of her age. The film is similar to many of the TV films that she made at the end of her life. Not a work of art but I think its well worth taking the time to view if you haven't seen it already.
