Sully is the producer of a cable news network program. Christy is his ex-wife and best reporter.

User Reviews: This is really worth rediscovering – Turner and co really throw themselves into it and (shock) Reeve sends himself up excellently (particularly good in the ‘vertigo in the lift’ scene.

As revealed elsewhere, it’s a remake of The Front Page – in fact right now can’t think of a better way to spend a rainy afternoon than a double bill of these two in front of a nice fire 🙂

So – not going to change your life – but I’ll cheer you up.
