This is the quintessential Welch vehicle. She is down to earth, physical, sympathetic, reviled and ultimately triumphant. She had to find this project herself because Hollywood had no idea how to use her. Instead of the glamour sex symbol roles, she was really cut out for the everyday woman role. If there is one regret, it is that Raquel did not take the part of Honey Bruce in "Lenny", that she was offered.
This movie, entertaining from beginning to end, showed Raquel in her finest hour, sure it is corny, but in the classic, All-American way that no one can argue...by all means get this one.
