Time Out says

This isn't as bad as one might expect. Brooke Shields as Dale Gordon, a leggy little rich girl attempting to fulfil her dead daddy's dream by winning a trans-Sahara car race, is bound to attract some cheap jokes. Yet although an ugly crier and an indifferent actress, Shields throws herself into the part with gusto, doing many of her own stunts and suggesting that, given the right script, she would work real hard to be more than just a pretty face. But this isn't the right script, and everyone is just a pretty face, including Lambert Wilson as the dashing sheik who takes her in his strong arms. McLaglen marshals his desert scenery well, and the plot almost manages to hold one's attention much of the time. It really isn't as bad as one might expect; but then expectations raised by this sand-strewn romantic adventure, inspired by the Prime Minister's son driving a fast car into the middle of Africa and getting lost, barely reached ankle height.

I first watch this movie was I was about 21 or 22 years, I feel in love with it then and still is now at 49. I watch again on Xfinity and the scene where he tell her to stop, don't come to him if it's not with her heart open, still gets me teary all over again. I love this movie, I just wish I had it in my collection. I give it 5 ***** stars
