Picks and Pans Review: Nothing Personal

UPDATED 04/21/1980 at 01:00 AM EST Originally published 04/21/1980 at 01:00 AM EST

The grains of a cute romantic comedy a la Foul Play were there: Suzanne Somers as a sexy-smart lawyer in aid of frumpy-hip professor Donald Sutherland, who's devoted to saving the baby seals from extinction on the Alaskan coast. The winsome twosome's improbable adventures en route to truth, justice and the American way are so deftly mangled, though, that all the funny situations are thrown away. The guilty parties apparently are director George Bloomfield and editor George Appleby, as well as scriptwriter Robert Kaufman. Count it as a lost opportunity for puncturing academics, ecologists, bureaucrats and capitalists. Nothing personal, Donald and Suzanne. (PG)
