Delta Burke (Designing Women) is a hoot—although unintentionally— as Melanie Darrow, a brassy criminal defense lawyer (and no relation to Clarence), who, in this TV movie mystery, has only one courtroom scene. The rest of the time she’s showing off her extralegal prowess: kicking a goon in the groin, outracing a time bomb and speaking fluent Chinese. Maybe if she rode in a Rolls-Royce, they could retitle this Burke’s Law.

Terry Kelleher is on vacation.
