So how can a swinging bachelor learn a lesson about love? As magazine publisher Michael Green celebrates his big 4-0, he finds a bikini-clad Sandy Benson wrapped in a big bow as a birthday present supposedly courtesy of his drinking buddies. After trading barbs with the former beauty pageant winner, they find they have an attraction of sorts and she sticks around. Romance abounds as this country girl goes looking for romance in the big city in a typical television romantic comedy fashion. Written by
The film's conclusion is set in Kenosha, Wisconsin, but mountains are clearly seen in the distant background. See more »
I have this phobia about getting to be 40. I don't know. When you're in your twenties, everybody says "boy genius!" And then when you're in your thirties, "Ah, yes! Young man on the way up!" You get to be forty... zip. Nothin'. No more adjectives. Just a man.

I faintly remembered this movie, but figured since it had Karen Valentine in it, it cannot be that bad. It is actually a very cute movie, and reminds me of "Love American Style" Karen Valentine plays a girl that is hired by a friend of a big-time Magazine publisher. She shows up at his door with nothing on but a bikini and wrapping bow for his birthday. They just don't make made-for-tv movies like this anymore! The VHS print that I viewed was awful! Time has not been kind to the print the distributor used. The film was in rough shape during changeovers, and the colour was bad-people looked flaming pink or morbid grey. The only good thing was that it was recorded in SP. It would be nice if the older TV movies were treated with a little more respect, for this movie it would have been better to be out-of-print, than the crusty version that's available on the market.
