Hang Up and Call Me unsatisfied!
17 August 2019 | by darrinSee all my reviews

Awkward dialogue and uneven acting at times. Film appears to be based on "Lady Beware," which fares better in every way. This film's only saving grace is seeing a pre-Disneyfied NYC. Great views of Downtown Manhattan. Can only recommend as a guilty pleasure/late-night cable viewing.
