Suspend your disbelief. No, expel it. Then take your credibility and stretch it, bend it, break it. Turn off your brain, and maybe you'll believe the premise of this one: Teri Garr is an Army nurse in Vietnam who misses the last chopper out in '75. Nine years later, she escapes from a prison camp near Hanoi with the help of a Vietnamese boy who speaks perfect, accentless English, and returns to the arms of her still-loving doctor hubby, Stacy Keach. That's just the beginning, the farfetched setup for a dreary exercise in group therapy and clichés (the first thing Garr wants when she's free again is—you get one guess—a cheeseburger). If you want to see a good movie about a mate who returns after a mysterious disappearance, rent a tape of Move Over, Darling with Doris Day and James Garner or My Favorite Wife with Cary Grant and Irene Dunne. They did the same thing with mirth instead of misery.
