Storyline

Lizette, Carol and Cheryl-Ann work as waitresses in Joe's donut shop located in the small town of Stayner, Ontario. While naive and perpetually smiling Cheryl-Ann, whose outwardly happy existence is despite her mother being seriously ill, considers Lizette her best friend, irresponsible Lizette - who is the bane of Joe's existence - finds Cheryl-Ann annoying. That is why it is with reluctance that Lizette asks Cheryl-Ann to be the replacement fourth for an ill Carol in tonight's double date, thirty-fifth birthday celebration for Lizette to the Dan Hill concert in Toronto. Terry (Lizette's exterminator husband) and Terry's exterminator partner Simon are the other two in the foursome. Lizette needed to find that fourth as Simon, who just broke up with his fiancée Pam, would not go without a date, and Terry wouldn't go without Simon, as both men really would prefer to stay in town and go to the local hockey game.

Took too long to get going
17 April 1999 | by (North Bay, Ontario) – See all my reviews

It took me quite a while to like this film, and although I was enjoying it towards the end, it wasn't quite good enough to recommend. The problem is, there are too many characters that make brief appearances at the start of the film, and since few of them get any significant screen time, it takes too long to start to know and care about these secondary roles. On a positive note, perhaps the best thing about this movie was the generally mellow soundtrack, so at least I had something pleasant to listen to even when the story was dragging. Unfortunately, the film dragged a little too often.
