Not bad but rather generic lightweight romance
14 February 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Before Summer School, Mark Harmon and Kirstie Alley teamed up for this made-for-TV romantic fable about a pool cleaning contractor who had it all: his own business, good looks and no shortage of female customers who wanted more than just their drains plumbed. But his all-American sex fantasy life gets complicated when Kirstie Alley shows up one day in one of his customer's pools. She's an artist, smart and interesting, and able to resist his boyish charm. To pursue her, he has to take stock of his life and lifestyle. Yep, pretty paint-by-numbers as these TV romances go, but at least everything is played for charm rather than cheap titillation. There is little comedy here, or much drama - it's mostly a character piece. The Bel Air setting is attractive and well- used, with lots of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous visual appeal and both Harmon and Alley are great looking and likable in their roles. This is also a great reminder of how Kirstie Alley got to be a sex symbol 25 years ago, since nowadays she is mostly famous for being overweight. Your first glimpse of her in a swimsuit is one of those true WOW moments. Cautiously recommended, keep expectations low.
