A male Cinderella story
23 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I caught this while flipping dials in a hotel waiting to leave for a wedding. This is how one ends up watching movies like this. And it's not a bad idea for a movie. We've seen lots of women on film transform themselves to become belle of the ball; why not take a schlubby guy and turn him into a hunky action hero? Of course, already knowing what Jack Scalia looked like, I knew their job would not be that difficult! (Not uncommon in the female version of this familiar scenario, I might add.)

Once the main character makes his transformation it becomes a story about someone who can have everything but it means nothing without that one true love. With the schmaltz factor set on "high" the story sails along to a satisfying conclusion, and no matter how many bathroom trips you make during the proceedings you won't feel like you missed anything.

On paper this film doesn't look like much, with its C-list cast and knowing it was made as pay-TV "filler" material. But for what it is, I dare say it slightly exceeds those low expectations, even though it's not something to go out of ones way to seek. Surprisingly, I kinda liked the fact that a bunch of people got together and made this so I'd have something to watch while flipping dials other than home shopping, infomercials, or even worse--an overblown colossal flop with bigger name stars who should have known better. With that comparison, mediocrity seems just fine.
