She has planned her itinerary to the minute, but when her bag is switched at the airport and she loses the name of her hotel, all her plans are thrown into chaos, and she finds herself in the middle of a typical Hollywood suspense plot. A friendly cab driver tries to help out, but doesn't believe bad guys are really after her. Written by Bob Watson <bwatson@dataex.com>

Lena is so lovely, the movie is so average
24 May 2005 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Lena (Felicity Waterman) lives in East Germany, a country just liberated because of the fall of the Berlin Wall. A James Dean fan, she comes to California to visit the Hollywood scene in Los Angeles. However, she first lands in East Los Angeles, in a pretty dire neighborhood. Once she finds the genuine movie making neighborhood, she rests content. But, not for long! Her traveling baggage is mixed up with another woman's, a lady who turns up dead. Lena turns to erstwhile cab driver, Mike (Chris Lemmon) for help in the ensuing and dangerous situations that come her way. Will Lena really have a rest- and-relaxation vacation in LaLa Land? The two stars, Waterman and Lemmon, make this movie palatable. They are attractive and comedically gifted. The script is one of the been there, done that type, however, with little coherence at times. Conversely, the sunny scenery and costumes add to a pleasant viewing. If you are a romcom fan and would climb mountains for a nice kiss or two, you will be happy you took a chance with this film. Everyone else would probably be a bit bored and switch to E.R. reruns.
