Some interesting elements
8 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you can buy petite, beautiful Yvette Mimieux as a loser, this is the film for you. It's also a fun watch if you're a fan of makeovers and soap operas.

The story concerns a whack job, Mimieux, who is obsessed with a soap star, portrayed by Simon McCorkindale. In fact, she lives her life as if they're together. By this I mean, she talks to him even though he's not there. You get the idea. Finally, she leaves her dreary job and existence and sets out to make her fantasy a reality.

In true TV movie style, she has herself completely made over, even dumping her glasses, and insinuates herself into his life by posing as a reporter. The fun starts there. A good watch.
