Storyline

Becky wants to become an actress. After an audition for a dog food ad she has best chances to get the part - but the day after her dog Petey becomes very ill. She has to come up with $700 until 5 pm for the operation - else Petey will be put to death! Lacking only $70, she takes a job as messenger. She needs only one delivery, but her car breaks down and bad luck delays her again, and again, and again... Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

great family comedy
3 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Cindy Williams is perfect for the main character in this film. It is foul language free and still fun. Cindy finds herself desperate for money as her dog has become ill, the vet wants to perform surgery, and she is a single working class girl. She tries out for all kinds of bit jobs to add to her income and ends up acting in a commercial for dog food. The different situations that Cindy finds herself in and how she plays off against the commercial producer, Tony Randall, are hilarious. Our family has enjoyed our old VHS copy made from the TV show in the 80s and we laugh out loud every time that we see it. We think that more people would enjoy it as well. We would love to see it come out on DVD.
