ALMOST LIKE A ROOT CANAL

"APPOINTMENT FOR A KILLING is another one of those early 90s tv movies that gave tv stars a chance to "stretch" their wings and try something different from their current series. Too bad they didn't put a little more life into their portrayals. Based on "true" incident, the movie follows the psychotic crimes of dentist Corbin Bernsen who has been offing people for about twenty years. He is currently married to Markie Post (who appears to be on Sominex), and has a sleazy mistress (Suzanne Barnes, over the top indeed) and an ex-con sidekick (Don Swayze in a wasted character). He confesses his latest crime to Markie and she goes to the FBI (a stoic Kelsey Grammer) who uses her to get a confession out of Bernsen. Corbin's real life mom (YOUNG AND RESTLESS's indefatigable Jeanne Cooper) also appears. There's little suspense and a very wimpy climax."
