Vacationing Georgia construction worker, John Schneider, meets and falls for Manhattan's comely Director of Urban Renewal, Marilu Henner, and despite her initial rejection of him, sets out to build a dream house for both of them on a parcel of land in one of New York's ghetto neighborhoods.
John Schnieder plays a carpenter who meets and romances this lady played by Marilu Henner. She is only in town to give conferences on construction for 4 days. They date for four days and she goes back to NY. John (Charlie) loads up his truck and goes to NY to find her and make her his wife. Although this city girl is not convinced, Charlie has a lot of patience. He buys a small strip of land in the ghetto that is wedged between two buildings: a spot where his love interest needs to build new condos. Charlie is against all odds trying to convince the girl that he loves to give him the shot that he needs and to build a house in the middle of the ghetto where the gangs go to great lengths to show him he's not welcome. Great movie. I liked this show. I just watched it today. I had my friend record it from HBO many, many years ago and the quality was not great, but it was nice to watch it again. It's a great show. If you liked this one, you will like the movie: The Last Fling staring John Ritter. I think you will have to settle for VHS. It's hard to find, but worth it. ~ Pat
