Review: Tom, Dick & Harriet

Steven Weber Stars as Too-Old Ad Man in Well-Made Hallmark Movie
New York Times

Tom Dick & Harriet (Hallmark Channel - Saturday, 8pm) - It’s not Mad Men, but the script by Ken Krauss has more wit to it than many Hallmark offerings, and the story is appealingly acted by a cast that includes Michelle Harrison as Harriet, an art director at the agency who becomes entangled with the fake adman and the real one.

This being Hallmark, the tale ends in a happy fantasy land for over-50 men. If it were more true to life, Tom would spend years searching unsuccessfully for work, lose his home and health insurance and then come down with a serious medical condition. But who would want to watch that movie?
