Mary Beth Hurt,
. . . but then again, not that good either. Cast do okay with an un-dynamic script - by far the best moment is when reporter April August is injured by a falling plastic moon. Weather presenter Linda Evans is then saddled with finding the 'Most Romantic Man' following the falling plastic moon incident.
She is engaged to a very boring but perfectly nice judge but encouraged by her teenage, romance novel-obsessed daughter to find someone more 'dynamic'.
Needless to say she ends up involved with a contestant and then it all goes pear-shaped.
Typical Lifetime/WE offering. 'Melodrama' but someone forgot to add the drama. Story line is heavily sign-posted.
