Picks and Pans Review: The Only Way Out
ABC (Sun., Dec. 19, 9 p.m. ET)
A wife and mother (Stephanie Faracy) gets involved with the wrong type of guy (Henry Winkler) while separated from her husband John Ritter). As Winkler's behavior becomes more and more disturbing, Ritter steps in to protect the kids.
The tension gets hokey as the plot sickens, but for much of its Length this is a deftly handled domestic thriller. What makes it work is that Ritter and Winkler are so good playing their respective sides of the solid citizen/psycho confrontation.
The scariest part comes right at the beginning when Winkler sings a few bars of the old Motown song, "Baby I Need Your Loving" Carry a tune? Not even if he had a forklift. Compared with Winkler, Candice Bergen sounds like Aretha Franklin.
