Picks and Pans Review: To Sir with Love Ii

UPDATED 04/01/1996 at 01:00 AM EST Originally published 04/01/1996 at 01:00 AM EST

CBS (Sun., April 7, 9 p.m. ET)


This is not so much a sequel as an American remake of the enduringly popular 1967 movie. Sidney Poitier, 69, is still teaching tough kids, only in Chicago now instead of London. It's hard to fault Poitier, as gracefully understated as ever, but his character is too predictable. Staunch as a lighthouse, he shines out with moral perfection wherever he turns. (Note to Lulu fans: That Scottish chickadee turns up at the start, does a quick reprise of the famous theme, and exits.)
