Bad Movie Featuring Daytime Soap Opera Stars
8 March 2008 | by vs661966See all my reviews

Woman on the Ledge is a made-for-TV movie. I saw it when it first premiered in 1993. In my opinion, from what I remember, it's a rather bad movie that features some of daytime TV's most recognizable actors. The cast includes: Leslie Charleson (General Hospital), Deidre Hall (Days of Our Lives), Colleen Zenk Pinter (As the World Turns), the late Michael Zazlow (Guiding Light/One Life to Live), Peter Bergman (Young & Restless/All My Children), Josh Taylor (Days of Our Lives), Kale Browne (One Life to Live/Another World), Ken Kercheval (Dallas), and even Sarah Chalke (Scrubs/Roseanne).

Most of the actors listed still appear on their respective daytime soaps, so if you are a soap opera fan you may want to watch this if just to see your daytime favorites as different types of characters than they generally play on their daytime shows.

The plot leaves a lot to be desired and sometimes appears to be a rather predictable "soap opera type" of story. Which woman ends up on the ledge? Does she really jump? Can she be saved? You'll just have to watch for yourself!

It wasn't the worst TV movie I ever saw, but it's certainly far from one of the best. My rating: 3 out of 10 stars.
