Another odd couple hits the streets. Yvette Mimieux and Diana (Soap) Canova co-star in this unsuccessful TV movie about two homemakers who become involved in a volunteer unit to aid crime victims. After her home is burglarized, Canova is outraged by the lack of police attention she gets. Along with her neighbor Mimieux, she joins a victim's assistance group. The two women are assigned to the night patrol, where they eventually prove their worth by helping out police in an emergency. The provocative issues deserve more serious treatment than they receive in this film, which was inspired by a crime-fighters program in Tucson, Ariz.
