Picks and Pans Review: Body Language

A more descriptive title would have been The Hand That Rocks the Rolodex. Linda Purl plays a psycho secretary who is not only ruthlessly efficient but also just plain ruthless. A thwarted executive trainee, she goes to work for newly promoted corporate go-getter Heather Locklear and slowly begins executing a devious takeover of Locklear's life.

The result is a decent office thriller that would have been improved a bit had Locklear and Purl switched roles. Come to think of it, it could have been improved a lot if Purl had donned a wig and played both roles.

Hey, wait a minute. Isn't Murphy Brown always looking for a good secretary?
