A delightful, entertaining film about making positive changes in living.
23 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think this is a delightful movie and would like to see it again. How do I buy a copy? Lauren Hutton in particular shows off more acting talent in her unique role than I though possible. She proves the validity of the old adage that models have more stage presence than they are given credit for and make the transition to actors more easily than most others seeking a career change to the acting profession. This movie's plot takes some unusual twists as it unfolds through character development in the course of the lead character's decision to make some real changes not only in lifestyle but in the manner and method of addressing perceived shortcomings head-on. I would definitely recommend this movie for those seeking a positive approach to making changes.
