better than you think.

I,ve loved this film ever since i recorded it onto tape out of curiosity some years ago.Susan Lucci is an attractive young lady who brought a unbecoming unexciting storyline to life and made the film worthwhile to watch.I recommend this film to anyone. Give it a chance.

I personally cannot wait for it to be released on to DVD.

I will go has far to say that this is as good as any Martin scorese films that been made.Please check this out if you can,and pray that the powers to be put it on to DVD.

The only reason i didn't give this ten out of ten is because its not got any high ranking stars in it.

Cheesy fun, and Susan Lucci as you wouldn't expect her to be.

As a fan of "All My Children", I was amused by Erica Kane but didn't quite love her like everybody else did. Her narcissism got on my nerves at times, and as beautiful as Susan Lucci was, she wasn't on the list of my favorite daytime divas. Still, I couldn't help but be amused by her antics, but until Erica had to mature to be a nurturing mother (which came not so easy to her), it was just she was trying to be she who must be obeyed, afraid to age and always in demand to be the center of attention. So imagine my surprise with this TV movie that she is quite different, a tough L. A. lawyer who suffered through the murder of her parents at the hands of the mob, and went through it again through the murder of her husband. Not knowing that the man who killed husband Roscoe Borne is also the man who killed her parents, hires mob hitman Michael Nader to take care of him.

If you seen the movie "Burnt Offerings" from 1976, you'll recognize the hit man, Anthony James, who played the chauffeur that came to Bette Davis in a nightmare. He is as creepy here as he was there, and once Lucci sets out to eliminate him, you know that's going to happen. Years later, both Borne and Nader would work with Lucci on "All My Children", with Nader playing her husband Dimitri. Joseph Wiseman is the mob boss determined to go legitimate who takes in Lucci's character as a teenager, basically raising her as if she was his daughter. But in this family, the women are wives and mothers, so with Lucci in power later on, it's quite a change for this crime family that can't quite get oit of the life.

It's nice to see Lucci playing a more ethical character, only turning to a life of crime by circumstances Beyond her control. When you meet her, you notice her beauty, but you also notice her kindness and compassion, her love for her family and her basic system of ethics. She's tough as a lawyer, and very smart, delightfully ruthless, and never going over the top in the melodramatics like Erica would. This is fast-moving and riveting, glamorous and tough, and Lucci has a more realistic wardrobe that Erica would never dream of wearing. Lucci being more down to earth is a great delight, and you can see her impressing the men she has to be tough with, particularly banker Jon Cypher. She may not quite be the Godmother, but she'll definitely get this mob under control.

Low rent mafia-themed TV movie

LADY MOBSTER is a low rent television movie set in the world of the mafia. The main character is a woman whose parents were bumped off by hit men, leading her on a lifelong vendetta to find and bring to justice those responsible; she does this by committing murder herself. This one was helmed by Argentinian director John Llewellyn Moxey, who previously handled such classics as THE CITY OF THE DEAD and THE NIGHT STALKER, but it's one of his lesser works. The unknown cast members are forced to play stereotypes rather than real characters, and despite some violent incident this doesn't have much in the way of suspense.
